Invicta FC Strawweight Champion Angela Hill to UFC Fight Night 104 to face Jessica Andrade
First reported by MMA Rising, current Invicta FC champion and UFC veteran Angela Hill will be headed back to the Octagon against Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, TX. The event which is headlined by Dennis Bermudez and “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung. Hill and Andrade were supposed to meet in December, but due to some USADA paperwork silliness, Angela Hill was unable to compete.
Angela Hill (6-2) has won four consecutive fights, including a victory over Livia Souza where she became the Strawweight Champion in Invicta FC. She dropped two consecutive fights in the UFC and was cut from the promotion in 2015. Her losses were against top competition, losing to Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres. An underdog in both of those fights, it seemed odd she was cut after the two losses. She finds herself back in the UFC after putting together a winning streak in Invicta FC.
Jessica Andrade (15-5) is an experienced fighter with a ton of ability. Andrade enters winning three in a row, including her last fight where she defeated Joanne Calderwood impressively by submission in Round 1. Jessica earned a Performance of the Night bonus in that contest. A well rounded fighter, she will be looking to move into the title picture win a victory. She’s currently ranked #5 in the UFC.
This will undoubtedly be an exciting fight as neither fighter has a boring style. The winner will be the fighter that is better able to implement her gameplan.
