Angela ‘Overkill’ Hill’s unlikely path to the UFC

UFC’s first African-American female fighter makes the most of her opportunity after a hard-fought journey


Angela “Overkill” Hill, the UFC’s first African-American female fighter, came to love the sport of mixed martial arts in a very unconventional way. The 34-year-old strawweight got her opportunity not through chance but by fighting hard, living at the gym and constantly training. Now she’s making the most of her time with the UFC after a hard-fought journey. Her next fight at UFC 238 streams on ESPN+ on June 8.
