Strawweight fighter Angela Hill will return to action against Alexa Grasso at UFC Fight Night 135, set to be held in Lincoln Nebraska on August 25th. The fight was teased by the prolific social media user Hill through Twitter on Friday night and confirmed by MMA Junkie shortly after.

Angela is currently ranked #15 in the 115 pound division, while Alexa is #11. Hill is also coming off an impressive win over Maryna Moroz from back in February, while Grasso looks to bounce back from a submission loss to Tatiana Suarez in May. Both fighters have powerful records from their days with Invicta FC but neither has managed to win two in a row with the UFC.

UFC Fight Night 135 is being headlined by a guaranteed barnburner between lightweights Justin Gaethje and Al Iaquinta. Also on the card: Eryk Anders vs. Tim Williams, Drew Dober vs. Jon Tuck, Andrew Sanchez vs. Braga Neto, and Rani Yahya vs. Luke Sanders.
