SuckerPunch athletes Felice Herrig and Angela Hill are fighting this weekend at UFC Fight Night in Houston LIVE and FREE on FS1. Herrig will face Alexa Grasso in the co-main event of the evening, while Hill will kick off the main card against Jessica Andrade. Both members of The Ultimate Fighter season 20, Herrig and Hill are looking to crack the top 15 of the strawweight rankings with wins against tough opponents.
Herrig, AKA “Lil Bulldog,” is known for setting a ferocious pace that not many opponents can keep up with. In her last bout she submitted Kailin Curran in round one and took home a performance of the night bonus. One of SuckerPunch’s most popular fighters, Herrig has a huge following on social media, which is part of the reason her bout with the highly touted Grasso is the co-main event. The UFC loves stars with exposure, and Herrig has become a fan favorite thanks to a combination of talent, looks, and a willingness to embrace marketability.
Angie “Overkill” Hill is making her return to the UFC after being cut in late-2015 following back-to-back losses. Hill went on to dominate four straight fights in Invicta FC, winning, and defending the strawweight title. Now she’s back, and she's bringing a growing fanbase with her. There will be no warm welcome wagon for Hill however, as she faces big challenge coming into this fight against the #5 ranked strawweight in the world. Expect everyone’s favorite Cos-Playing Twitch streamer to come out firing on all cylinders to prove she truly belongs amongst the best in the world.
