The UFC continues its run at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. This week’s event, UFC on ESPN+ 35, is headlined by a five-round contest between top-15 ranked strawweights, Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill.

Waterson has lost her past two outings to former strawweight champions, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Carla Esparza. Waterson’s most recent win came in March 2019 when she scored a decision over Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Hill has been busy over the past 12 months. UFC on ESPN+ 35 marks her fifth fight in a year. She is 4-1 during that time. Her most recent loss was a split-decision defeat to former strawweight title challenger Claudia Gadelha.

Hill is the No. 13 ranked fighter in the official UFC strawweight rankings and Waterson comes in at No. 8.

Waterson won the Invicta FC atomweight title in 2013. She defended the 105-pound belt once before she lost the title in late 2014. Waterson then inked a deal with the UFC and moved to the 115-pound weight division.

Waterson went 2-2 in her first four fights with the UFC. She won her next three fights before she ran into Jedrzejczyk.

Hill, who won and defended the Invicta FC strawweight title before she moved to the UFC in 2017, had a rough start to her UFC career. She went 3-5 in her first eight outings. In September 2013 she went on a three fight winning streak before she ran into Gadelha.

UFC on ESPN+ 35 takes place on Saturday, the entire fight card streams on ESPN+.
