The UFC’s debut trip to Glendale, Ariz. is filling up fast.

A strawweight matchup between ranked contenders Michelle Waterson and Cortney Casey is the latest addition to UFC on FOX 29. The UFC confirmed the booking Thursday following an initial report by Arizona news outlet AZ Central.

It's a good fight, but I think Casey wins pretty easily.
I haven't been that impress with Waterson since her return, she seems to have a style that hasn't evolved in the past 5 years and seems to have a lot of trouble getting it to work now. I mean, when your best win coming back is Vanzant, that doesn't mean a whole lot lol.
Casey on the other hand seems to be contantly evolving and always brings her best so I like her chances.
I do like Waterson, though, so I hope she at least looks better than she has been looking.

Waterson's gotta big bigger than her opponents, not smaller.

Wrong weight-class for her.

Imo this is an awful matchup for Waterson. Casey isn't a "big name" and is going to dominate this fight. This is the problem with doing the majority of your promotion based on a fighter's looks. Eventually they run out of winnable fights for them.
