Angela Hill has agreed to step up and face Amanda Lemos on short notice at UFC Fight Night 199.

Hill is a replacement for Nina Nunes, who withdrew from the bout for undisclosed reasons. Ag Fight was first to report the new strawweight booking. UFC Fight Night 199 takes place on Dec. 18 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Derrick Lewis and Chris Daukaus.

Hill has lost three of her last four Octagon appearances. Most recently, the Alliance MMA representative dropped a unanimous verdict to Tecia Torres in a rematch at UFC 265. Earlier in 2021, “Overkill” took a decision win over Ashley Yoder at UFC Fight Night 187 in March.

After falling to Leslie Smith in her promotional debut in July 2017, Lemos has reeled off four consecutive victories in UFC competition. So far this year, the 34-year-old Brazilian has scored back-to-back first-round TKO wins over Livinha Souza and Montserrat Ruiz.
