Michelle Waterson, The Karate Hottie, hilariously impersonates Thai mother

Michelle Waterson has long been a favorite in the mixed martial arts community. “The Karate Hottie,” as she is affectionately known, is always engaging with her fans and showing off a bright smile and positive energy.

Waterson (13-4) is currently preparing for her UFC on FOX 22 headlining bout against Paige VanZant in Sacramento on Dec. 17, but she took a break in training to share a hilarious video with the fans.

Waterson shared a discussion she had with her Thai mother about an outfit choice for her press conference to promote the upcoming fight.

That is when “The Karate Hottie” broke out a hilarious impression of her mother that any fan of comedy can enjoy, including some of the advice she received from her mom about what to wear and the reasoning why.


Waterson last competed in the UFC at The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale last July. The bout, Waterson’s UFC debut, was a successful one; a third-round submission victory over Angela Magana.

VanZant is currently the No. 8 strawweight in the UFC, while Waterson is ranked No. 12.
