UFC on ESPN 2 ‘Barboza vs. Gaethje’ Results – Michelle Waterson defeats Karolina Kowalkiewicz via Unanimous Decision
Michelle Waterson picked up her second biggest over the former title challenger Kowalkiewicz in a three round battle. Kowalkiewicz came out all guns blazing in the first round with her pressure and kept Waterson on defensive. The Jackson-Wink prodigy returned the favour following the next two rounds as she went toe-to-toe with Kowalkiewicz on the standup and on the ground. Waterson had Kowalkiewicz in deep trouble as she locked an armbar but she ran out of time as the bell rang. Continuing with her high volume approach and forward pressure Waterson gave no room for Kowalkiewicz to implement her game. Waterson has now won three fights in a row, which could mean she has a good chance to fight for the title later this year. Kowalkiewicz dropped her second straight fight for the second time in her career and has some serious changes to make.
