Angela Hill



Pinheiro up next
February 22, 2024
Hill is scheduled to compete against Luana Pinheiro in a strawweight fight at the UFC's May 18 event, per Nolan King of USA Today.
Hill will enter what could be her 10th full year in the UFC. 2023 was a mixed bag for the strawweight veteran, who began that year with a loss to Mackenzie Dern but somewhat bounced back with a win over Denise Gomes. Pinheiro also went 1-1 in 2023, with a split-decision win over Michelle Waterson-Gomez and a brutal TKO at the hands of Amanda Ribas.

Leans on wrestling in victory
November 4, 2023
Hill defeated Denise Gomes via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Set to turn 39 years of age next January and fresh off getting demolished by Mackenzie Dern in a main event this past May, Hill completely flipped the script to earn a much-needed victory. Long known as a pure stand-up specialist, Angie leaned on her wrestling game to get past Gomes. She fired off a whopping nine takedown attempts, landing five, good for 8:03 worth of control time. Grounding Gomes was an extremely smart game plan from Hill given the former's aggressiveness on the feet. The Dern setback sticks out like a sore thumb given how lopsided it was, but Hill has quietly won three of her last four dating back to August 2022.

Hill will try to get back on track following a lopsided decision loss to Mackenzie Dern at UFC Vegas 73. However, her next opponent is a Brazillian scheduled to fight in her home country and with a 2-1 record across her last three fights for the promotion.
No-shows main event loss
May 20, 2023
Hill lost to Mackenzie Dern via unanimous decision (43-49, 44-49, 44-49) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The scores alone will give you an idea of how lopsided this fight was. Hill is competitive each and every time we see her in the Octagon, which made this performance all the more disappointing. It was widely assumed that Angela would hold both a striking and cardio advantage over Dern, but Mackenzie was so aggressive the entire fight that Hill was never allowed to get in any sort of rhythm. It must be noted that Angela deserves full marks for displaying plenty of toughness, as there appeared to be well over a half-dozen instances in which it appeared as if fight would end, only to see Hill somehow survive each time. Now 38 years of age, Hill is the very definition of a highly-respected professional in this sport, but she's had difficulty winning the "big" fight over the course of her career, with this being the latest example. On the bright side, she'll take home an extra $50,000 after the main event was awarded Fight of the Night honors.
