Michelle Waterson, Amanda Lemos

Amanda Lemos earned a well-deserved victory over Michelle Waterson at UFC Long Island.

Coming off a loss to Marina Rodriguez last May, Waterson was looking to get back to the win column having dropped three out of her last four with a sole win over Angela Hill by a split decision. She clashed with Lemos at tonight’s UFC on ABC 3: Ortega v Rodriguez at the UBS Arena in Elmont, New York.

Both ladies got off to a cautious start with Lemos getting the better in stand-up. A failed takedown attempt by Waterson got her trapped in a guillotine choke to get finished in round two.

A UFC strawweight matchup between Amanda Lemos and Michelle Waterson is reportedly targeted for a July 16th Fight Night event.

News of the in-the-works fight was first reported by MMA journalist Ariel Helwani.

Lemos will make a quick turnaround following her loss to former strawweight champion Jéssica Andrade in a UFC Fight Night headliner just weeks ago. The loss to Andrade snapped a five-fight winning streak over the likes of Angela Hill and Livinha Souza.

Lemos made her UFC debut back in 2017 against Leslie Smith, before undergoing a two-year layoff from competition. She would go on to win her first UFC bout against Miranda Granger in Dec. 2019.

Lemos will face a stiff test in Waterson, who has competed against some of the top strawweight contenders in the UFC. She was slated to face Amanda Ribas in March before suffering a near career-ending injury.

But it appears that Waterson is ahead of schedule with her recovery and will look to snap a losing skid with defeats in three of her last four fights. She most recently suffered a unanimous decision loss to Marina Rodriguez in a flyweight bout last May.

The July 16th Fight Night event will be headlined by a featherweight battle between top contenders Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez. The Waterson vs. Lemos matchup will likely be on the main card of the event.
