UFC on ESPN+ 35: Waterson vs. Hill predictions

Both fighters looking to crack the top 5 rankings

The UFC is back in Las Vegas this weekend for a strawweight showdown between No. 8 Michelle Waterson and No. 13 Angela Hill.

Both fighters will be looking to crack the top 5 with an impressive win in the main event of tonight’s event.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (8PM ET/5PM PT)

BILLY QUARANTILLO (14-2-0) VS. KYLE NELSON (13-3-0)

Andrews: Nelson snapped a two fight skid with a win in his last bout, but he is in tough with Billy. This should be a good scrap, but Billy should emerge from the dust.

Andrews Prediction: Billy Quarantillo via TKO

BOBBY GREEN (26-10-1) VS. ALAN PATRICK (15-2-0)

Andrews: Green has some momentum coming into this one and I think he continues on after some initial trouble.

Andrews Prediction: Bobby Green via UD

ED HERMAN (25-14-0, 1NC) VS. MIKE RODRIGUEZ (11-4-0, 1NC)

Andrews: A good fight. Both have some good momentum coming into this.  I am going with Herman to steal this one by grinding out a decision.

Andrews Prediction: Ed Herman via UD

#9 ANDREA LEE (11-4-0) VS. #11 ROXANNE MODAFFERI (24-17-0) 

Andrews: Lee needs a win here over the veteran in Roxanne. If she can outstrike Roxanne and keep the fight standing, then she will be in a good position. Easier said than done, but Lee takes it.

Andrews Prediction: Andrea Lee via UD

OTTMAN AZAITAR (12-0-0) VS. KHAMA WORTHY (16-6-0) 

Andrews: All but one of Azaitar’s wins have been outside of the octagon. Worthy has the physical and experience advantage and should be able to use them to grind out a decision.

Andrews Prediction: Khama Worthy via UD

MAIN EVENT

#8 MICHELLE WATERSON (17-8-0) VS. #13 ANGELA HILL (12-8-0)

Andrews: A good fight and a bit of a tossup. Hill is slightly a better striker but Waterson is better on the ground. Both have proven they can compete with strikers and grappler but despite Waterson needing a win, I think Hill comes in motivated to make a statement.

Andrews Prediction: Angela Hill via UD
