UFC Fight Night 135 will see two of the most exciting female strawweight fighters face off against each other. The fight will be between Angela Hill and Cortney Casey. The two fighters are both from the USA and will look to get a victory on home soil. Both fighters will know the importance of a win so we can expect a very good contest.
Cortney Casey was not originally down for this fight but entered as a replacement for Alexa Grasso who withdrew due to injury. This might be a big advantage for Casey as her opponent would not have been preparing for her. This element of surprise has done wonders for many fighters in the past and it will be interesting to see if it aids Cortney Casey. It has been a tough few years for Cortney Casey as she has only won one fight since the end of 2016. This is not a great record and the American will know that she must start winning if she wants to remain on the UFC roster. This might be the last chance that Cortney Casey has in the UFC and she will be determined to win.

Angela Hill, on the other hand, has improved significantly as a fighter. The former World Kickboxing Champion has adapted to this style of fighting well and has been improving every time she enters the rings. This will be another great chance for the American to show her talent as she is facing an out of form fight.
This is not an easy match to predict and although Angela Hill looks like the fighter in better form, I am going to pick Cortney Casey to win. Casey knows the importance of this fight in regards to her career and she will be fighting for her life. This attitude makes UFC fighters very dangerous and I think it will get her a win in this fight.
