Only one of three judges appeared to be in disbelief that Angela Hill hadn’t won the fight with Michelle Waterson.
Waterson (18-8 MMA, 6-4 UFC) took a split decision from Hill (12-9 MMA, 7-9 UFC) with a 49-46 score and a 48-47 in her column at UFC Vegas 10. The bout was the main event of the evening.
“I was confident, but you never want to leave it in the hands of the damn judges,” Waterson said on the broadcast after the win. “To get another split decision doesn’t leave a good feeling in your stomach. … Whoever’s the next contender to fight for the belt (is who I want next). I want to get to the belt as fast as possible.”
Contender status on the line!
