The former contender for the UFC title in the minimum weight Gadelha in the co-main event clash with former Invicta FC champion at 115 pounds hill.
In 2016, Gadella missed the chance to win a UFC title, losing a unanimous decision to the then division Dominator of the Joanna Agacik. Since then, the Brazilian has lost two fights and three wins, including a finish delivery Caroline Kowalkiewicz and winning on points over former UFC champion Carla Esparzas. The last fight “Claudinha” held in July 2019, extremely convincingly beating the judges ‘ decision to Randa Markos.
Hill, going to the UFC in 2017, has lost five of seven fights before stepping on the winning track. She won consistently at the Arian Cornelisse, Hannah Sifers and Crowbars of Lukmani. Not the strongest level of opposition, moreover, is not to say that hill has progressed lately.
Forecast for battle
Gadella feels great in the stalls above, and it is quite a technical drummer. Hill is good on his feet at any distance, aiming to the exchange. But Angela’s not so good on the ground as her opponent besides, she is not very good protection from takedowns. Gadelha has a strong enough chin to withstand the most powerful blows hill if it comes closer and threw an American on the ground, then she will be in trouble.
