UFC cuts women's strawweight, TUF 20 standout Angela Hill

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Unfortunate, but probably not surprising.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) made a little more room on its roster last weekend, parting ways with The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 contestant and women's strawweight prospect Angela Hill, 27, who recently suffered her second consecutive loss.

From her official Facebook page:

Last year in April I had my first MMA fight. Two days later I flew out to Vegas and tried out for The Ultimate Fighter. It's been a roller coaster ride and I proved to myself how strong I could be through the shittiest situations. After two losses to top five ranked opponents I got the call that I've been released from the UFC. It's bittersweet, but I'll hopefully be able to stay more active outside the octagon and gain the XP I need to make my way back to that belt.

Hill (2-2) was bounced from the FOX Sports 1 reality show with a submission loss to Carla Esparza, but was invited back to TUF 20 live finale and captured a unanimous decision win over Emily Kagan. "Overkill," however, faltered in follow-up fights to Tecia Torres and Rose Namajunas.

No doubt a torrid win streak on the regional circuit will earn her a second look.
