UFC strawweight contender Michelle Waterson was getting set to take on Carla Esparza at UFC on ESPN+30 on April 11 in Portland, Ore., but now, just like everyone else on the UFC roster, “The Karate Hottie” finds herself in limbo as she ponders her next assignment. Speaking to MMA Junkie from her home in Albuquerque, N.M., Waterson (17-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC) said she hopes to be back in the octagon as soon as possible once the coronavirus pandemic has run its course. “I sure hope so. I kinda don’t know what to expect for the near future for anything, so I’m just staying in shape,” she said. “Luckily I have an amazing house to quarantine in, and my husband is an amazing coach. So just between the two of us we’re able to get good workouts in and stay in shape, so we’re staying in shape and just waiting to hear some good news.” The natural step would likely be to simply rebook Waterson and Esparza for a future show.
