UFC Angela Hill showed off some legitimately impressive icing skills with a sugary recreation of one of MMA’s most infamous incidents. The strawweight division fighter re-imagined the Conor McGregor tour bus attack from two years ago entirely in gingerbread.
Hill posted the creation she made with her husband, Adam, to Instagram.
“Merry Christmas ya filthy animals! Adam and I spent longer than I’d like to admit making this beautiful #gingerbreadhouse highlighting an important moment in MMA history. Adam drew all the faces but Conor and the whole thing is made from gingerbread, icing, chocolate for the dolly and candy! (Holla at me for real @nailedit) #mmamemes #mma #nailedit #conormcgregor,” she captioned the photo.
Hill’s delicious duplicate looks great and also nails the details as well.
McGregor attacked a bus in the loading area of the Barclay Center in 2018, ESPN reported. “The Notorious” was angry that his rival Khabib Nurmagomedov — seen rocking the furry ushanka — had confronted his friend and sparring partner Artem Lobov. That’s Lobov to the left of McGregor who is preparing to launch a dolly at the bus. Something he did in the videotaped attack.
UFC President Dana White is on the right. He’s furious his biggest star is throwing objects at a bus filled with some of his top fighters. Several people were injured in the incident.
The Irish fighter later pleaded guilty in the attack. A judge sentenced him to serve community service and take anger management classes as part of a plea agreement, Rolling Stone reported.
McGregor and Nurmagomedov eventually took their fight to the octagon later that year. The Russian submitted McGregor in the fourth round.
UFC Fighter Hill Misses Fight Because of COVID-19
Angela “Overkill” Hill would have rather made headlines for her fighting performance rather than her baking skills. She was scheduled to fight Tecia Torres in UFC 256 earlier this month. But Hill had to pull out of the match after testing positive for COVID-19, ESPN reported.
“Tested positive for Covid and won’t be fighting next week,” Hill tweeted. “Tried to stay as safe as possible during fight camp but with MMA training there’s virtually no social distancing.”
The 35 year old said she expects to return to the octagon soon.
