Another longer video in the same vein.

I think they are working on some educational videos.

SeverianB - 

This (7 year old) video has clips of Michell Waterson's first MMA fight, which she won.   (As far as I know, this is a pro fight, she never had any amateur fights)

 

It also has clips of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone,  who was her first MMA coach.

The story goes:

Michelle was a ring card girl at a MMA fight in Colorado.  She thought it looked like fun,  so she asked Donald Cerrone for training.   He was skeptical, until she came to the gym and demonstrated her abilities.    He then agreed to train her.   

Just some fun facts.


Yep, she says in the video that she is fighting pro in her first MMA fight.

ssjbroly - compare that pad video to the real 105 lb champ hitting pads.

Nice.    I really hope they get to fight each other soon.

Of course we will have to do the smack-talking for them, (they are both way to polite)  and since you have already started:

 

The sloppy, amatuer-hour padwork on display here by Ham and friend is laughable.    So little technique,  so many mistakes.     See Waterson's smooth flow?   She's trained by the same people who train Carlos Condit.   Hell, Carlos steals many of his kick combos from her!

 

Michelle would light Ham up. (/smack talk)

Take that.  ;)

MMA Math incoming:

 

Ham barely got a decision against Sugiyama,  who got dominiated and finished by Penne, who got finished by Waterson.   On top of that, Waterson made Penne look slow and easily outstruck her.

Let's say Ham does outstrike Waterson and it goes to the ground.   Ham will get armbarred or choked out pretty quickly.   Her ground game is not at Waterson's level.

I suspect it would stay on the feet though, with Waterson easily outpointing Ham.

That's the power or make up. She doesn't draw her eyebrows on for weigh ins or fights. As an asian, she barely has eyebrows. Phone Post 3.0

If you fight pro anything (MMA, kickboxing, Thai boxing, boxing) you are a pro fighter. So you can't do pro MMA and amateur boxing.

I'm assuming this is why she had no ammy MMA fights? Phone Post 3.0

It sucks.  Elena was a really good fighter, and Michelle will never get a chance to avenge that loss.

When Michelle says that she doesn't follow other fighters and lets her coaches decide who she fights, she's not joking.   When it was pointed out to her that Elena had retired because of injury,   Michelle was genuinely suprised and upset.   They both speak very highly of one another.. a lot of mutual respect.

 

In other news. Michelle said that she expects to be fighting in January against a top contender.    Jessica Penne and Seo Hee Ham (the current atomweight champ in Japan) are the obvious picks.
