“The Karate Hottie” is lined up for another Fox assignment.
Michelle Waterson will meet Cortney Casey-Sanchez at UFC on Fox 29 in a strawweight contest. The event is scheduled for April 14 at the Gila Rivera Arena in Glendale, Ariz. The bout was first reported by AZCentral.com.
UFC on Fox 29 is headlined by a lightweight clash between Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier.
Casey-Sanchez, 30, has gone 3-2 over her last five bouts in the Octagon. “Cast Iron” is coming off of a split decision loss to Felice Herrig at UFC 218 on Dec. 2.
The 32-year-old Waterson is also 3-2 in her last five UFC appearances. The Jackson-Wink MMA product was choked out by Rose Namajunas at UFC on Fox 24 last April, then returned in December, dropping a unanimous decision to rising contender Tecia Torres.
