After great images that this 2020 has left, the UFC 257 he comes with everything and already confirmed a gigantic fight. In her, Amanda Ribas Y Michelle Waterson they will have to face each other, after very good performances in their last fights. It should be noted that the Brazilian comes from defeating Paige VanZant in her last contest, while the American did the same against Angela Hill.
They are both candidates for a title fight, so this contest between them will be really exciting. While they did things very well in the past, this time there is no room for mistakes. Whoever manages to stay with their arms raised, will probably take a trip to the top to try to get the title in their possession. Thus, the expectation begins to grow more and more and UFC celebrate what’s coming.
Of course Ribas (10-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) wants to stay with his winning streak of five consecutive fights, which he achieved in an excellent way. She signed with the UFC in 2019 and has thus far beaten Emily Whitmire, Mackenzie Dern, Randa Markos and Paige VanZant in succession. Now, if she manages to finish off a former champion like Michelle Waterson, there is no doubt that she is the title contender.
For its part, Waterson (18-8 MMA, 6-4 UFC) was able to bounce back very well from back-to-back losses when she defeated Angela Hill in September. “I tell people all the time that the strawweight division is the most stacked division of the female in the UFC. The girls only appear to fight. Not only are they full of heart, will and determination, but technically they are very solid fighters with incredible resumes even outside the top 10, “she said later.
It will be a great night
Although there are still several weeks for this event to take place, initially everything would be arranged to take place. Although any inconvenience can occur, as on other occasions, the will of both is present. There is no doubt that both of them want to get a chance for the title, so they know that this cross is one of the best they can play in these difficult times.
