Angela Hill on Cynthia Calvillo: “F**k yeah, I’d fight her”

Cynthia Calvillo has quickly become one of mixed martial arts rising stars.  At a perfect 6-0 overall in MMA, 3-0 since coming to the UFC, the Team Alpha Male prospect has been turning heads and has been getting the attention of UFC President Dana White.

“The first time I met Conor McGregor, I called Lorenzo [Fertitta] and said ‘Man, I don’t even know if this guy can fight, but if he can throw a punch he’s going to be an ****** rock star.’ You know? Ronda Rousey, I had a 45-minute meeting with her and I decided to do women’s MMA. I feel pretty strongly about this one too. I loved her performance tonight.”  That was White talking about Calvillo after a UFC 210 win over Pearl Gonzalez.

Calvillo holds UFC wins over Amanda Bobby Cooper, Gonzalez, and most recently Joanne Calderwood.

But whose next?

Calvillo doesn’t currently have a fight scheduled, but then again there is also not a long list of ladies lining up to call her out either.  Insert former Invicta Fighting Championship’s strawweight champion Angela Hill into the conversation of women who is not afraid to take up the challenge.

Hill who has been quite impressive since coming back over to the UFC put the question to bed when asked by a fan “any chance you fight Cynthia Calvillo next ? She needs an opponent.”

Hill put on a tough fight in a loss to Jessica Andrade in February but bounced back earlier this month with a unanimous decision win over Ashley Yoder.

Would a fight between Angela Hill and Cynthia Calvillo interest you?
