Waterson vs Rael, Esquibel vs Riehle at Jackson’s MMA Series 7

Posted: January 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

Jackson’s MMA Series 7 takes place on January 21st at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Albuquerque, NM and showcases three women’s bouts. In pro matchups, Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson makes her return to the cage to face off with 8th ranked Strawweight, Diana “Dynamite” Rael, while Jodie Esquibel takes on Amy Riehle in a 110-pound catchweight bout. This event will be streamed LIVE and can be purchased for $10 on the Jackson’s MMA website.

Waterson (8-3) returns to action following the birth of her daughter riding a two-fight win streak. In February 2010 she defeated Rosary Califano via an amazing flying armbar, which would earn her 2010 WMMA Submission of the Year. Two months later she would defeat Masako Yoshida via a first round TKO. In her last bout in August 2011, Rael (3-1) traveled to NM and picked up her most impressive win to date, over then undefeated Angelica Chavez. Rael will look to build on that momentum as she welcomes Waterson back to the cage.

Pro boxer and Jackson product, Esquibel (1-0) made her pro MMA debut in April 2011 with an impressive first round TKO victory over Brittney Horton. Riehle (0-1) made her pro debut in November 2010 and lost via first round TKO to Casey Noland. Also on the card in amateur action, Jackson product Emily Kagan and Cortney Casey square off.
