She wants her opportunity...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Michelle Waterson said she put off her second pregnancy due to the Invicta FC/UFC deal, which could give her a chance to fight for the UFC. Here are highlights:
On waiting for an opponent: "All those things go through your mind. I feel like fighting is such a sacrifice on your body and on your family. If you're just training with nothing in front of you, sometimes it's hard to stay motivated. I started thinking, man, if I'd known I was going to be out this long, I could have had another baby already."
On what the Invicta/UFC relationship could mean: "That was great to hear, because I feel like the relationship between Invicta and UFC Fight Pass is going to allow Invicta to have more cards, more opportunities."
On the future: "I think a lot really depends on how this event goes. Hopefully this will allow Invicta to have more cards so I can fight more regularly. Then this can actually be a career for me."
