Cortney Casey came out pressuring Michelle Waterson and the latter countered with plenty of horizontal movement. Casey tagged Waterson with a couple of big punches, but finished the first round with her back on the floor, courtesy a takedown from her opponent. Waterson scored another takedown in round two, but found herself defending a couple of armbar attempts from Casey.
Waterson took the fight down again in round three, but Casey once more, threatened with submission attempts. In fact, as the final horn sounded, Casey was working on an armbar attempt. It was a close fight, but Waterson picked up the split decision win.
