After the fight, Waterson took to Instagram to express her disappointment in the judges’ decision.
“I am heartbroken, a little confused but I wanted to jump on here quickly and say thank you for all the love and support I am getting from all of you all around the world,..and from people within the industry which eases the heartache.
“I feel like as a fighter you know whether you’ve won or lost the fight when all is said and done, it shows in your face, it shows in your body language and I was really excited when that fight was over, I thought I pushed the pace…I thought I was the more well rounded fighter than wanted it more but all is said and done and the results are in and there’s nothing I can do change those results.”
It’s been a few weeks since the fight and Waterson back to dancing and being her jovial self as could be seen in her latest viral TikTok video.
You know you’re a fighter when… your go to dance move is a side Kick!!! #slate #protein
