The Karate Hottie loses in Ring Of Fire
The Dec. 1 Ring Of Fire show in Bloomfield, CO featured three womens matches. One of the matches was the semi main event on the show. The promotion was looking to make a big deal about a fighter named Michelle Waterson. She's known as the Karate Hottie. She's a former Hooters girl and one of the stars of the TV show Fightergirls. Like a lot of women getting into MMA, her training is in Muay Thai. She has been training at Greg Jackson's camp in New Mexico. Her opponent Lynn Alvarez had other ideas. She is also a Muay Thai fighter. Waterson charged Alvarez but was caught in a guillotine choke. She escaped but after a Waterson takedown, Alvarez got her in another guillotine choke and Waterson tapped out at 1:19 of round one. Oh well, back to the drawing board. Cat Albert wasted no time with Nikki Garcia. She took her down and pounded her until the fight was stopped at 45 sec of round one. After the fight, Albert said she wants Gina Carano. Doesn't everyone? In the other match, Kate Martinez won over Sharya Hefner with an armbar at 2:30 of round one. One unrelated note. The womens match on the USA vs Russia Bodog Fight show was canceled when Julia Berezkova got sick.
