Now, I get to pay it forward and hold space for Moms all across the globe to get their stories told.It started as a need to gather data and le… read more


42: Pursue Your Own Passion And Dreams For Your Children with Michelle Waterson aka Karate Hottie

Martial Arts has been apart of Michelle Waterson aka Karate Hottie’s life for as long as she can remember.  She has an older brother who she always desperately wanted to be like so when he joined the local Karate School, she naturally followed in his footsteps. The minute she got a taste of competition she was hooked.  Her passion for Martial Arts followed her through her High School years and gave her the foundation to push off in times of self-doubt and sabotage. 

After graduating High School she went off to College and took a break from training.  She wasn’t happy and slowly started to lose herself.  On a trip to Thailand, she decided to train at a local Muay Thai Gym.  It felt as if the Universe smacked her in the face, and told her to wake up.  She realized then, that she had strayed from what she was destined to do.  Martial Arts were her life.  It ran through her veins and set her soul on fire. 

Martial Arts were going to be her career, and Jackson Wink MMA became her new University.  She fought in the amateur circuit for a couple of years and then decided to jump into the Pro world when she was 21.  She has been fighting professional ever since then!  She met her husband, Joshua Gomez, during her career.  He is her other half and she truly doesn’t know where she would be without him.  At what she thought was the height of her career, she found out that she was pregnant.  Her career was put on hold and she had no idea what was going to happen to it.  Luckily because of the belief her husband and coaches had in her, she was able to continue my fighting journey.  

Her beautiful daughter Araya was born and 10 months later, she took her first fight back as a mother!!! (Hells to Yeah!!!)  She went on to become the Atom weight champion for Invicta FC, received a performance of the night headlining for the UFC, made the cover of ESPN’s body issue, and have fought some of the baddest women on the planet.  In-between all the highs are of course the inevitable lows: breaking her hand three times within a year and a half span, going on a two-fight losing streak and struggling with family issues that were far more important than her fighting career.  

She fights because she loves it!  She wouldn’t change it for the world.  It has made her who she is today.  It has taught her so much... both in and outside of the Octagon.  Martial Arts has allowed her to forever be a student and she will forever be grateful for the lessons she’s learned along the way.  She looks forward to the lessons the future holds and she’s excited to continue her journey in the pursuit of greatness.

One of her biggest goals is to be the first mom who wins a UFC title belt.

Her next fight is on March 30, 2019 in Philadelphia!
