UFC Vegas 45: Amanda Lemos vs Angela Hill

‘Amandinha’ Lemos is on quite a run as it stands as she’s put together a four-fight win streak. Her most recent victory came against Montserrat ‘Conejo’ Ruiz via TKO just 00:35 into the first round. Lemos has only lost one fight in her 12 fight pro career, which came to Leslie Smith back in July 2017.

Lemos has starched two of her most recent opponents via TKO and she has established herself as someone to watch out for. With smooth forward pressure and fast hands, she will be looking to catch Angela Hill coming in. ‘Overkill’ tends to maintain some plotting movement in the fight, and this could be detrimental in the contest.

Angela Hill is on a career downturn at the moment and she’s 1-3 in her last four fights. ‘Overkill’ was closing in on a title shot at one point in her career, however, those days seem to have passed her by. She is 13-10 overall and is dangerously close to becoming a 50-50 fighter, a position she’ll certainly want to reconsider.

Angela Hill is well-rounded especially once she takes the center and is adept at controlling the space around her. The Alliance MMA fighter will want to focus on landing leg kicks throughout that will help keep Lemos on her toes.
