Total MMA Recently interviewed Fight Girl Michelle Waterson about her current training and her upcoming EliteXC fight. Here are some interest questions that were brought out:
Total MMA: You’re preparing for your third MMA bout, your first
in a cage. How is training going?
MW: Training is great. I’m 100% confident in my ground this
Total MMA: Greg Jackson’s camp has a huge list of talent. There’s
Duane Ludwig, who will actually fight in the main event at Ring
of Fire 30, and Keith Jardine, who has a big fight coming up next
weekend for the UFC… Do you have any heroes in the martial
arts? Was that something that brought you to the Jackson camp?
MW: (laughs) It’s funny, all the guys. I looked up to all of them.
After I met them in person, they became family. They all took me in with open arms and welcomed me into the Jackson family. I
train with Julie Kedzie, and she’s a big hero to me.
Total MMA: Your opponent is Jaime Cook;
she’s also a striker, isn’t she?
MW: Yeah, from what I know she is, so
it’ll be good.
Total MMA: Have you seen her fight?
MW: I haven’t. She has a real quick clip on
YouTube. She’s definitely a brawler. She’s
got some heavy hands but that’s OK ‘cause
I got a strong jaw.
Total MMA: Have you watched the show?
Do you feel like you were portrayed pretty
accurately in it?
MW: I think they did a really great job of
portraying everybody on the show, the way
we all were. The only thing I wish they did
is show the entire fights, the fights in their
entirety. They might have shown me coming
across a little weak, but I think when
I was on the show… I was. You know, it
was really mentally wearing on me. It was
a turning point in my life and I was learning
a lot about myself.
