UFC 229 will air live on pay-per-view and will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between reigning undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former title holder Conor McGregor. Taking to Instagram, Felice Herrig has decided to offer her thoughts on landing her big match up for the event.
“I’m excited to announce my next fight! On Oct 6th I will fight Michelle Waterson. Some of you don’t know, but Michelle and go way back to the days when women in MMA was not even a thought. We were on the Muay Thai reality show “fight girls” together. Everyone always talked about us fighting then but we never did. Michelle and I are both veterans now and I am happy we are both still in the game together and here at the highest level. We’ve both come a long way since Fight Girls. And here we both are 11 years later fighting each other.”
