Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Michelle Waterson vs Felice Herrig

Here's the match video of Michelle Waterson vs Felice Herrig from UFC 229 in Las Vegas. It aired on the main card. These are veteran fighters looking to get into the Strawweight title picture. I said on my podcast on Friday that the result of this fight depends on Felice. She can win if she is aggressive but she doesn't always do that. In round one, I didn't think either of them were very good. I scored the round 10-9 for Felice but it was very close. One judge scored it the same and the other two scored it for Michelle. Michelle clearly won round two. She took Felice down and pounded her. I scored it 10-9 for Michelle. Two judges scored it that way. The other judge scored it 10-8. I don't agree with that. Felice's trainer Jeff Curran told her it's close and she needs to be more aggressive. In round three, she took Michelle down. But she wasn't aggressive and Michelle landed elbows from bottom position. That won Michelle the fight. I scored the round 10-9 for Michelle and the fight 29-28 for Michelle. All three judges scored the round 10-9 for Michelle. Michelle wins by unanimous decision 30-27, 29-28, 30-26. Or I could say that Felice lost because she lacked aggression. In her post fight interview, Michelle says she wants into the title picture. I think she won the fight but she would have big problems with Tatiana Suarez, Poliana Botelho or Jessica Andrade. Pick one. It's a bad loss for Felice because now she goes back to the prelims. Enjoy the video!


  1. Frank, I hope you are alright. I noticed a slowdown of your activity on Twitter and your blog. so I hope everything is okay with you. Secondly I agree with you. Felice was just not aggressive enough and she also walked into some nasty kicks from Waterson. I was in a sports bar in Elgin,il and the whole bar was cheering for Felice, because she is a local favorite. But we could all see she did not do enough to win the fight. The place was packed, standing room only and fell silent when she lost. To bad for her. I wish both of them the best of luck. I agree with you on Michelle having problems with other fighters. I do not think she could win against many of them out there. Thanks for the videos. David.

  2. The site where I download the UFC videos was down yesterday. I was able to download them this morning. Then AccuRadio was down this morning. So I posted the UFC videos instead. And I did my song of the day this afternoon. I'm always on Twitter but I save things for my blog and podcast.

    1. Thanks so much Frank. Glad you are okay and doing well. Love the videos and the song of the day from Exile. Yours David.
