Rolls past Angela Hill again
StrawweightUFC
August 7, 2021
Torres defeated Angela Hill via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC 265 on Saturday in Houston.
ANALYSIS
Torres looked just as good, if not better, than she did in the first fight between the two back in June 2015. She won that won via unanimous decision also. Hill was a step behind in the striking game all night long, and Torres took full advantage. She wasn't worried about Hill's stopping power, so she could press forward when the opportunities presented themselves without fear of being damaged. Torres is undersized for the division at just 5-foot-1, and her grappling game isn't great, but she is unquestionably a high-level kickboxer. The soon-to-be 32-year-old has won three straight on the heels of a three-fight losing streak.

Taking on Angela Hill in August
StrawweightUFC
June 14, 2021
Torres (12-5-0) agreed Monday to face Angela Hill (13-9-0) in a strawweight fight Aug. 7 at UFC 265, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Torres and Hill will be meeting for the second time in their careers after Torres claimed a unanimous-decision victory back in June 2015 at UFC 188. "The Tiny Tornado" went on to win in her next fight to open her MMA career with a 6-0-0 record, but she's proven more vulnerable in recent years. After losing four straight fights between 2018 and 2019, Torres picked up wins over Brianna Van Buren and Sam Hughes to restore some confidence. She'll look to maintain that momentum in August, when she'll be re-entering the Octagon for the first time in nearly eight months.

As for Torres, she has now won back-to-back fights following a four-bout losing streak.
