Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson took off her gloves and put on a two piece for a bikini contest for an auto show in San Diego.
The 31-year-old American UFC fighter holds a black belt in both American Freestyle Karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has been studying martial arts since the age of 10.
She started a modeling career back in 2004 after graduating high school, but switched to professional fighting three years later.
Waterson was was the Invicta Atomweight Champion until she lost the title to Hérica Tibúrcio in December, 2014.
She’s scheduled to fight Rose Namajunas in April, 2017, but she can clearly fall back on her modeling career if she ever stops fighting.
