UFC strawweight Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson-Gomez turns to cage-side commentary.

On tonight’s Combat FC 3, that’s streamed UFC Fight Pass, Waterson-Gomez will serve as the lead commentator, furthering the representation of women calling internationally broadcasted MMA.

“I think it will be really cool because commentary is a little bit different than analyzing where I get to sit down and enjoy the fights and just talk about what I see in live time,” Waterson-Gomez told MMA Junkie. “I feel like I’ll be really comfortable talking about the fights and watch the fighters compete.”

The 37-year-old American has previously served as a desk analyst for the UFC during the FOX Sports era, and claimed that her love for MMA will make her stay in the sport one way or another.

“It’s something that you will always continue to be a student at. If I’m commentating and still learning, I’d love that when I’m done fighting. Martial arts is always going to be part of my life. If being an analyst and a commentator is going to allow me to still be in the MMA world, I would absolutely welcome it with open arms,” Waterson-Gomez said.

Michelle Waterson-Gomez is scheduled to fight Luana Pinheiro at UFC 287 on April 8.
