After stepping in this past weekend to replace teammate Jessica Penne against Jodie Esquibel, she has now agreed to stand-in for Felice  “Lil Bulldog” Herrig against Xiaonan Yan. Herrig announced this week that she would be unable to fight due to an ACL tear.

Hill (9-6) won a decision against the Jackson-Wink veteran, and will now fight a tough out in Yan (10-1), who is currently undefeated in the Octagon. Before the Esquibel fight, Hill lost by submission to Randa Markos at UFC Nashville.

Who do you think will win this fight. Do you think it will be the game but short notice Hill, or Yan?

  1. Notice is not that short and anyway, Angela fights frequently so I assume she is pretty much always in training. Her record is hit-and-miss, so I would figure Yan for the win.
