Coming to the fight, Torres seems very dangerous as she is one of the most powerful strikers in the women’s strawweight division and also maintains great pace throughout the fight. ‘The Tiny Tornado’ mixes things well and throws a flurry of strikes to take out her opponent.

The only thing that seems week in Torres’s game is her ability to escape when clutched against the cage. However, her opponent Hill is no slouch either and has incredible Muay Thai skills. ‘Overkill’ will also have the advantage of height and reach over the comparatively shorter Torres.

Final Prediction: Tecia Torres defeats Angela Hill via unanimous decision.
