First reported by Ariel Hewlani for ESPN, a new opponent has been named to face Angela Hill at UFC Fight Night 135 in Lincoln, Neb.
“Cast Iron” Cortney Casey will now face Angela “Overkill” Hill on August 25th.
Hill was originally scheduled to meet fellow Invicta standout Alexa Grasso, however, the Mexican prospect was forced to withdraw from the bout for reasons undisclosed at this time.
Grasso was last seen in action in May, suffering a one-sided defeat to Tatiana Suarez.
Hill will look to make it two in a row— coming off a UD win over Maryna Moroz in Feb. She is 2-2 since re-signing with the promotion in early 2017.
Casey will look to snap a two-fight skid following split-decision losses to Felice Herrig and Michelle Waterson.
