Newly signed UFC strawweight Michelle Waterson will make her promotional debut at the Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale, officials announced late Wednesday evening.

Pitted against Waterson will be Angela Magana in a bout that adds to the developing July 12 card.

Waterson (12-4) is a former Invicta FC atomweight champion and comes into the UFC off a loss, but has gone 6-1 over the last five years. The 29-year-old has a 2013 win over now-fellow UFC strawweight Jessica Penne.

Magana (11-7) is in much need of a win. The former TUF competitor has lost three in a row, including her UFC debut at the TUF 20 Finale in December.

More updates for the TUF 21 Finale are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

    sounds about right for her debut when coming off a loss and up in weight. magana is insufferable, but she’s a decent fighter. i think we’ll see some entertaining striking exchanges. waterson would be wise to take it to the mat, but i’m not sure she’ll have success in getting it there. fan friendly fight.

  • I hope Waterson smashes her
