Michelle Waterson makes Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) look effortless and sexy. And although it’s considered a bloody combat sport, this tough lady seems to never back down from any of her fights. Known as the “Karate Hottie,” she rose to fame as an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Fighter who ranked number one in the world women’s atom weight division. She also placed significantly in UFC’s strawweight rankings.
Although she was born in Colorado Springs, she comes from a mixed heritage of Thai and Caucasian descent. And as evidenced by her exotic facial features, her genes have played a significant role in her unique and sultry look.
Before she fully plunged into professional fighting, she dabbled in modeling right after graduating high school. She later enrolled at the University of Denver for college, and realized soon after that she wanted to pursue a career in MMA.
Interestingly, she also dipped her toes into film acting, playing bit roles in movies like “MacGruber” (2010) and “Fright Night” (2011), and performing stunts in “Transcendence” (2014), “The Signal” (2014), and “Independence Day: Resurgence” (2016).
She entered the world of fighting as a ring girl and slowly transitioned her way as a fighter. It may seem hard to imagine how a gorgeous woman like Michelle could choose a profession that put both her life and body on the line. Yet, such a brave career choice also makes her interestingly hot and attractive to anyone who knows what she does. Her long list of wins makes her stand out even more, in a profession dominated by men.
As a professional fighter, Waterson is not shy about flaunting her body and exposing a little bit of skin. After all, she’s worked hard to achieve such a well-toned and sculpted physique. She’s probably used to being in a bikini all the time, and as evidenced by a vast number of her photos online, she’s capable of showing both her sporty and flirty side.
When it comes to her body, Waterson’s most noticeable feature is her ass. As a fighter, big boobs might get in the way of sparring and grappling, so there’s not much to say except she’s got a great body. Also, it’s already a given that she’s got a beautiful face, but having a perfectly shaped bum takes her overall look to a whole new level. This noticeable physical trait makes her look fabulous in a pair of jeans.
However, looking past the superficial, Michelle is a woman who knows how to appeal to a diverse audience. With an Instagram following of 1.4 million, she has captured the interest and support of both men and women in her pursuit of being an outstanding athlete and an excellent mom. Michelle Waterson is proof that being tough is also a beautiful thing.
