Cortney Casey replaces Alexa Grasso versus Angela Hill at #UFCLincoln

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.


Stay tuned for more!

  1. Good for Cortney stepping up to the plate. After 2 straight losses, she needs a win and Hill will be no easy cake walk. I hope the UFC gives her some slack if she is unable to prevail.
