The Ultimate Fighter 20 contestant Angela Hill has been released by the UFC.

The strawweight combatant confirmed the news via social media.

Last year in April I had my first MMA fight. 2 days later I flew out to Vegas and tried out for The Ultimate Fighter. It's been a roller coaster ride and I proved to myself how strong I could be through the shittiest situations. After 2 losses to top 5 ranked opponents I got the call that I've been released from the UFC. It's bittersweet, but I'll hopefully be able to stay more active outside the octagon and gain the XP I need to make my way back to that belt.

Hill (2-2) lost via submission to eventual champion Carla Esparza in the preliminary round of The Ultimate Fighter 20. She then bounced back from that defeat with a unanimous-decision victory over Emily Kagan at the show's finale in Las Vegas.

Following that win, Hill dropped back-to-back fights – a unanimous decision to Tecia Torres at UFC 188 and a submission to Rose Namajunas at UFC 192 – leading to her UFC release.

Both Torres and Namajunas are currently ranked in the top five at 115 pounds.
