Michelle Waterson signs with WME

Michelle Waterson signs with WME

It was reported via Twitter by Ariel Helwani that Michelle Waterson has signed with entertainment giant WME. The UFC was of course bought last year by the WME-IMG conglomerate for $4.2 billion dollars.

“The Karate Hottie” signed with Brad Slater, the same WME agent that represents Ronda Rousey. The signing is only natural, as it is expected that a number of high profile fighters will eventually sign with agents at WME for outside business opportunities.

In Michelle’s case, she already has a highly-touted documentary titled “Fight Mom” that came out days before her big primetime win over Paige VanZant. Waterson was also a model before her career¬†as a mixed martial arts fighter.

She has all the tools to be very successful outside of the ring so it is a great signing by both parties. No word on who Waterson will be facing next, although there have been rumors of a possible title match with UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
