Not only “Big Ben”, but many fans, officials, and fighters feel that the judgments at the events over the week were not up to the mark. One of the fighters who were vocal about the judgment made in her math was Angela Hill.

She faced Claudia Gadelha in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 176. In a toe-to-toe bout, she outstruck Claudia, even though by a little margin. Claudia managed to score one takedown in four attempts while “Overkill” did not attempt any.

Many media organizations, experts, and sites felt the Hill deserved to win. And Hill took to Twitter to announce that she felt so, too.

I won that fight [Dana White]. Book me on the [fight] island, Arizona, apex wherever, and I’ll carve up more of your girls. Ready to go next week.”

And yet again, Hill proves why there is no fighter like her. Undoubtedly, the most active fighter in the UFC is a true warrior. Appreciating the same, Rothwell too, took to Twitter.

“Warrior”- Ben Rothwell is all praise for Angela Hill

In his response to Angela’s Tweet, Rothwell wrote,

“Warrior[!] And I feel for you. Judging has been extra disgusting lately.”

Truly, a great gesture from fighter to fellow fighter. Even though he won his fight, Rothwell does not want to remain quiet about the plight of others.

Many fighters took to Twitter in support of Angela. And she is not the only one who faced troubles with officials. Dominick Cruz, too, continues to be heavily critical of the referee who, in his view, called an improper stoppage. Although Cruz’s problem has nothing to do with judges, it highlights the extent of criticism that UFC Officials are facing at the moment.
