Paige VanZant is still a work in progress. But the 115-pound rising star could catapult herself into the spotlight with a win on Saturday night. VanZant (7-2) is set to main event the Saturday card in Sacramento against Michelle Waterson (13-4). VanZant is coming off of arguably her best career win when she knocked out Bec Rawlings with a crazy switch kick, but Waterson will prove to be a much tougher test.
Waterson is the former Invicta FC atomweight (105 pounds) champion. Since joining UFC and moving to 115 pounds, Waterson is 1-0 with a submission win over Angela Magana in July 2015. Of her 17 professional fights, only two have gone to a decision. Safe to say, these two will bring the action.
Plus, Sage Northcutt and Mickey Gall will settle their score. Here's how the card shakes out with the latest odds from Bovada.
