Jessica Andrade vs. Angela Hill
It would not surprise me if the winner of the fight goes on to a title shot, specifically if it’s Andrade. This is a fight in between a top-five strawweight who is undefeated in the department and the existing Invicta FC 115-pound champion, who’s on a four-fight winning streak.
Andrade is vicious, really strong and explosive for the department, and her battling style reminds me a great deal of Wanderlei Silva. She attacks mainly with powerful looping punches, and mixes strikes well with hooks to the body. Andrade likewise has great takedowns, good grappling, and an insane guillotine choke. If you haven’t watched Angela Hill’s revival in Invicta FC, you’ve missed out on Hill’s remarkable and quick enhancement in all locations of the game. Her Muay Thai still stays her most reliable weapon, but her takedown defense and grappling have actually significantly enhanced. I find her to be a significant addition to the UFC’s strawweight division, and I believe this fight needs to be a bit more detailed than what the odds forecast.
Regardless, I still see the Brazilian taking this bout, as I find her to be too powerful in her striking and grappling for Hill to manage the upset.
Prediction: Jessica Andrade by TKO
