UFC 229 Preview: Waterson vs. Herrig

Waterson and Herrig are similar in multiple ways, right down to the fact that they both have 21 professional fights under their belts as they ready to reach 22 together in Las Vegas. While Waterson comes from a karate background and Herrig is more of a Muay Thai stylist, they’re both strikers at heart with solid submission skills and scrambling abilities in their back pockets should the action hit the canvas.

Neither has the fight-altering power of top contender Jessica Andrade or the dominant wrestling skills of rising star Tatiana Suarez, but both are high output, high cardio, high pace veterans with a propensity for delivering entertaining performances whenever they step into the Octagon.

What makes this contest so compelling, however, is where these two women are at in their respective careers and how that fits within the current landscape of the 115-pound weight division.

‘I only wanted to lose weight but I almost lost my life’: 22-stone woman, 35, nearly died after a gastric sleeve …

An obese woman claims she was given just days to live after she developed deadly sepsis from a gastric sleeve operation.

Laura Battrum, 35, from Birmingham, was severely overweight at 22 stone (308lbs) when she decided weight-loss surgery was her only option.

Due to her suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the NHS agreed to pay for the operation, which took place last January. 

Thrilled, Miss Battrum thought she was one step closer to her dream of starting a family with her partner of eight years Steve, 37. 

Instead, she claims she developed sepsis and was given three days to live before being put in an induced coma for a month.

After spending a total of four months in hospital, Miss Battrum is finally back at home. But the health and social assessor is now forced to use a colostomy bag, and battles mobility problems and fatigue every day.
