Review: 2014-09-06, nice and tough shots between Michelle Waterson and Yasuko Tamada: it gets three stars. The black belt in karate Michelle Waterson entered this fight with a professional mma record of 11-3-0 (82% finishing rate) but she is not ranked as she hasn’t fought since April 5, 2013 when she defeated Jessica Penne winning the Invicta FC atomweight belt (=Penne vs Waterson).
Her opponent, Yasuko Tamada, has an official record of 15-8-3 (13 submission victory rate – she has never won by ko/tko) and she entered as the No.7 women’s atomweight in the world, she comes off three consecutive wins.
