UFC fighter channels her inner Sagat at the Fight Night 104 weigh-ins, Angela 'Overkill' Hill is back with another amazing Street Fighter tribute

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • February 3, 2017 at 1:23 p.m. PST

Angela "Overkill" Hill is set to face off against Jessica "Bate Estaca" Andrade at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, Texas this weekend. Each of the fighters on the card participated in the official weigh-ins earlier today, stepping on the scale in front of fans and press to see who did and didn't make weight for their match up.

Hill, whose fighting background lies in Muay Thai, arrived at the event in shorts, hand wraps, and an eye patch across her face in honor of Street Fighter's own king of Muay Thai, Sagat.

After squaring up against Andrade -- which is a common practice after each weigh-in for promotional and hype generating purposes -- Overkill launched into Sagat's trademark arms-crossed laugh.

It is always a treat to see professional athletes show love to our favorite fighting game franchises.

This isn't the first time we've seen Hill give a nod to Street Fighter at a fight weigh-in. Back in March of last year, she actually came dressed as Dhalsim, and it was just as entertaining to watch.

All a part of Ono's plan to keep Sagat relevant without releasing him #Kappa It's great to see fighting games getting love from various people in entertainment.

Best part is how it's specifically Alpha sprite Sagat, not SF2 sprite Sagat.

Angela Hill is always entertaining. She's got a tough task ahead of her though. Jessica Andrade is no joke.

Cool broad! If anyone's interested, kotaku ( yeah, i know), did an interview with her. Its pretty inspiring and likely relatable to many here. Google it, unsure about linking it in the comments.

Angela Hill data mines in her spare time, and this is her way of telling us all what she found.

Hopefully we get a new black character . A black female Thi boxer would be nice.

Hey EH, can we please ban comments like this?

This is way more harmful to your community than posting "FIRST" as the first comment of an article.

We don't need to be informed of who random posters would "f*ck" every time a woman is featured in an article.

Unless this is the type of 'inviting' community you'd like to cultivate here at Eventhubs...

Kool! I don't know much about UFC, but it's nice to see street fighter getting some mainstream love.Btw is her competitor acting like a MK charecter? She has the same stiff stance that they have lol.

#18
Blackoshinomi said on February 3, 2017 at 3:36 p.m.

Then when will it end ?

I'm pretty sure alot of people want your comments deleted for the intense nut hugging you display when you defend capcom

On the positive side its great to see someone love their employer so much.

Hey EH, can we please ban people asking/demanding for others to be banned?

This is way more harmful than someone making a harmless 'i'd f_ck' comment. This is someone who wants voices to be silenced because someone said something they didn't like. That is fascism, and it should not be tolerated.

We don't want a community of thin skinned, disingenuous, dishonest, evil race baiting snowflakes that will take any opportunity to label others misogynist or racist or homophobic to claim a moral high ground they do not deserve so that can corrupt a decent place like this and subvert it to serve their disgusting, insidious agenda. Build A Wall against them EH, and Kick Them Out.

Props to the dedication of keeping the bouncy idle stance going while the opponent didn't know what the hell to do.

To build the toughness of the FGC even further, I suggest getting the folks who make these comments online and force them to say the same things directly to her face. I'd pay to watch the outcome of that.

Awesome

Capcom, are you thinking what I'mean thinking? ;)
A female characters with MMA style (Muy Thai, Kick Box, and BR Jujitsu). That is not a grappler.

Too bad the one using bandana didn't take it, she was doing a great bandana Ryu cosplay, only needed to cross arms and look away.

Now that's a fan, she did all that training just to get on camera and do that. You go girl.

dantemundus said on February 4, 2017 at 7:46 a.m.

No you wouldn't. And building 'toughness'? What, are we going to to war with the MMO community or something? What an absurd thing to say.

How about every time you disagree with someone on the internet or you make a suggestion that involves someone else doing something we ship you over to those folks so you can say that to their face? I'd love to see how that works for you.

#38
delamarche said on February 4, 2017 at 8:06 a.m.

re: toughness, you were the one who said thin-skinned. Have fun arguing with yourself, it looks good on you. You can add it your resume under "internet tough guy."

Groove_Heaven said on February 4, 2017 at 8:32 a.m.

Woman doing a cool thing that has to do with SF

Better turn it into a conversation about f*cking her that devolves into an argument about the new PC world order conspiracy theory complete with meaningless buzzwords like "snowflake" and "SJW"

#40
dantemundus said on February 4, 2017 at 1 p.m.

Yes I did, in that we don't need the thin skinned, overly sensitive, regressive filth known as the SJWs infecting the FGC. What does the toughness of the FGC have to do with that statement, and how do you conflate the two? I'm genuinely quite curious as to how someone can be that stupid. Thats something you can add to you resume, next to "unintentional comedian". Would be best for you to keep "critical thinking" off of it though.

#41
delamarche said on February 4, 2017 at 4:40 p.m.

Enjoy your crusade. Let me know when the FGC has achieved sufficient intellectual purity that I too can also say things on the internet that would mark me as an undisciplined child in any civil company. I can make you a medal or something. Until then I'll just try to treat people like decent human beings o/

#42
dantemundus said on February 4, 2017 at 4:59 p.m.

Another dodge? Can't say I'm surprised. What is surprising is that you speak of intellectual purity when you haven't the intellect to offer a rational defense for the positions you've taken or the statements you've made. But that is what people like you do, throwing out accusations based off of feeling and bias rather than evidence and logic in a desperate to claim the moral high ground you so fervently need, since your arguments and statements are paper thin and riddled with holes. Keep your medals, unlike you and your ilk I don't need participation trophies. And your kind never treats people like human beings, decent or otherwise; you treat them as groups.

She'd either let him f-ck or she would tell him to f-ck off. Lol, you think female fighters are just beating up every guy that hits on them?
