UFC Fight Night 93’s Michelle Waterson suffers broken finger in training, posts x-ray

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

It’s been over a year since Michelle Waterson made her UFC debut, and now “The Karate Hottie” may have to wait a bit longer before getting back in the cage.

The 30-year-old was scheduled to face Aisling Daly in a few weeks at UFC Fight Night 93 in Hamburg, but revealed on Saturday that she suffered a broken finger this week that’s likely to take her out of the event.

Penick’s Analysis: Highly unfortunate setback for Waterson. She won her debut last year, but these injuries keep piling up on her and it’s kept her from following up on that. The fight with Daly would have been a good opportunity to reestablish herself, but now it’s unclear just how much longer she’ll have to wait in order to do that.
