Michelle Waterson will look for a semi-quick turnaround when she returns to the Octagon to face Cortney Casey at the upcoming UFC on FOX 29 fight card on April 14, 2018 in Glendale, Arizona according to AZ Central.

“Karate Hottie” is fresh off a loss to Tecia Torres, which went down last December at UFC 218 in Detroit, Michigan. Prior to that, Waterson dropped a unanimous decision to Rose Namajunas at UFC on FOX 24.

Indeed, Michelle needs a win in the worst way.

As for Casey, she is also coming off a loss, as she came up short against Felice Herrig at the same UFC 218 event. Casey has racked up a sub-par 3-4 mark inside the Octagon, so a win over Waterson would be huge for her confidence moving forward.

UFC on FOX 29 is set to feature a Lightweight showdown between Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier, while Matt Brown will return from a short retirement to face off against Carlos Condit. Also Dhiego Lima will face Yushin Okami, while Krzysztof Jotko faces Brad Tavares.
