Angela Hill may be through the worst stretch of her career, but she has hope that things will get better in the future.
The veteran of the UFC at strawweight, who previously held the title at Invicta FC, will make his comeback this coming Saturday on the preliminary event of UFC on ESPN 41. She will compete against Loopy Godinez in a catchweight contest at 120 pounds.
Hill, who has a record of 13-12 in MMA and 8-12 in the UFC, comes into the battle on a three-bout losing streak and has a record of 1-5 in her most recent six fights. The 37-year-old believes that she is still competitive and considers her record to be "deceiving" given the number of intense and contentious battles that she has been involved in.
At the media day for UFC on ESPN 41 on Wednesday, Hill told the reporters, "I'm not going to sit here and call out the champ, but I'm definitely not losing faith in my abilities and in the fact that I know more than most of the girls on the roster right now when it comes to skill." Hill was speaking about the upcoming event. "I have more experience than most of them, and that’s got to count for something. And I’m looking up to the old dudes that have done it before me. I still have aspirations to be the best. "
Hill is thrilled about the contest she is currently preparing for. She has a lot of respect for Godinez, who has an 8-2 record in MMA and a 3-2 record in the UFC. "Overkill" Hill anticipates a fight that will be plenty of exciting moments.
Hill said, "Oh, we’re throwing down, man, we’re throwing down,"
"I know she’s aggressive, and she seems to have one pace. She just goes, goes, goes. "
"When I fight people like that, that’s when I get in the zone, that’s when I get in that flow state. When people try to fake me out like they’re not going to do anything, and then they do something really fast, then it kind of takes me off of my game. I think we’re going to be throwing down the whole fight. "
