UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON ESPN+: Waterson vs. Hill is set for this Saturday, September 12 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The main event features a strawweight bout between the division’s No. 8-ranked contender Michelle Waterson (17-8-0) and No. 13-ranked Angela Hill (12-8-0).  All fights will be carried exclusively on ESPN+ in English and Spanish. The main card begins at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT, with the prelims kicking off at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT.

Two fan-favorites and former Invicta FC champions square off in the main event as Waterson looks to re-insert herself into the strawweight title conversation against Angela Hill. This will be Waterson’s third UFC main event and Hill’s 16th UFC bout, making her the record-holder for most fights in UFC women’s strawweight history. Hill also becomes the first African-American woman to ever headline a UFC event.
