UFC Fight Night 120 results: Nina Ansaroff edges Angela Hill in high-paced affair

After struggling to start her UFC career,  Nina Ansaroff (8-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) now owns a two-fight winning streak after downing a game Angela Hill (7-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC).

The women’s strawweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 120 event at Ted Constant Convocation Center on the Old Dominion University campus in Norfolk, Va. It aired on FS1 following additional prelims on UFC Fight Pass and ahead of a main card on FS1.

Both women looked quick and poised to open, rattling off jabs and low kicks early in hopes of setting up more powerful attacks. It was a quick pace for both women, and both landed powerful strikes on the feet. Hill’s non-stop movement provided her with options on the feet, and she capitalized with powerful low kicks and quick hands. Ansaroff answered with crisp jabs and few low kicks of her own, though Hill just seemed the busier athlete.

Ansaroff pressed forward to start the second, seemingly looking to pick up the pace. Ansaroff appeared to be the more powerful fighter, but Hill’s speed movement proved a perfect counter. Ansaroff continued to lead with the stiff jab, drawing blood from her opponent’s nose. At that point, Hill seemed to slow a bit, and Ansaroff started loading up on her shots. Leg kicks really chopped away, and Ansaroff sat down on her punches, as well. Hill was game in return, but there was a slight drop in her speed and output.

With the fight seemingly hanging in the balance, both women came out firing in the third. Ansaroff’s low kicks left Hill limping a bit, and her punches landed down the middle. But Hill was always there to counter, flurrying in return with rapid punches and low kicks of her own. The two fighters continued the high pace until the very end, but Ansaroff was just the busier fighter, and she walked away with the decision, 29-28 on all three cards.
