Waterson returns after her dominant win over Felice Herrig at UFC 229 for her second straight win inside the Octagon, as she looks for her first title shot.
Kowalkiewicz looks to bounce back after her loss to strawweight title challenger Jessica Andrade, who faces Rose Namajunas at UFC 237, as either Kowalkiewicz or Waterson could line up to be next on March 30th.
