MMA: UFC Fight Night-Raleigh-Cifers vs Hill Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Angela Hill continues to be the strawweight division’s first call on short notice.

Hill is set to face Loma Lookboonmee at UFC Auckland, stepping in for the injured Hannah Goldy on the Feb. 23 fight card that streams live on ESPN+.

Hill’s manager, Brian Butler, tweeted news of the replacement on Tuesday, the same day Goldy said she’s sustained a shoulder injury and wouldn’t be able to compete.

UFC Auckland marks the fourth time Hill has stepped up on short notice since this past April. She’s gone 3-1 in the octagon with back-to-back stoppage wins, including an impressive second-round stoppage of Hannah Cifers in January at UFC Raleigh.

Lookboonmee makes her second octagon appearance after a split call over Aleksandra Albu in her debut this past October.
