The rest of the bout order hasn’t been set as of yet. In this COVID era, it is not at all that surprising since the card is likely to change again before fight day.
According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, the exciting strawweight bout between Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill has been promoted to the main event slot for UFC Vegas 10. Amid the cancellation of Glover Teixeira vs Thiago Santos.
Heading into this main event clash, Michelle Waterson will be looking to get back to winning terms after losing two back-to-back fights in the UFC. The first was against Carla Esparza at UFC 249 and the previous being a decision loss to Joanna Jedrzejczyk in UFC Tampa.
Talking about the other, Angela Hill is also on the back of a loss after losing to Claudia Gadelha in May. Being a controversial split decision loss. Although, Hill does have wins over the likes of Ariane Carnelossi, Hannah Cifers, and Loma Lookboonmee.
