Ariane Carnelossi Replaces Istela Nunes, Faces Angela Hill at UFC Mexico City

By Cole Shelton Aug 14, 2019


Angela Hill will remain on the UFC Mexico City card after her original opponent, Istela Nunes, was removed from the event due to a failed drug test.

Hill will now face Ariane Carnelossi, according to Mexican outlet Indiscutido. UFC Mexico City goes down on Sept. 21 and will be headlined by a featherweight tilt between Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens.

Carnelossi (12-1) will make her Octagon debut after fighting in promotions such as Thunder Fight and Future FC. The Brazilian is currently on a 12-fight winning streak. In her last appearance, she defeated Ketlen Souza by TKO in the third round. Her lone loss came in her professional debut against current UFC talent Amanda Ribas by submission.

When Hill makes the walk to the Octagon, it will be her fourth time in 2019. She is 1-2 on the year with a win over Jodie Esquibel and losses to Randa Markos and Xiaonan Yan. The 34-year-old is 9-7 as a pro and 3-5 inside the Octagon.
