Evolution Muay Thai Alum – Angela “Overkill” Hill

“My husband Adam and I started training with Brandon in 2009. I had my first Muay Thai fight in 2010 when I won the WKA USA 110 lb women’s novice championship.

In 2012 I won the WKA USA open women’s 120 lb women’s tournament, in 2014, the North American Professional 110 lb women’s title and in 2014 I won my first MMA match, securing myself a spot on TUF20 and subsequently the UFC.

Brandon and the Evolution team have been there with me every step of the way. I’m proud to be a part of the Evolution family.”


Muay Thai

The traditional fighting style of Thailand, Muay Thai (Thai boxing) is a brutally effective martial art for both competition, self-defense, and general fitness.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a grappling-based fighting style focusing on incapacitating opponents through the use of leverage against weak areas of the body.


Since ancient times, wrestling has been a training tool for fighters and soldiers alike. One of the original sports of the Olympics, wrestling has a rich history of competition.


Closely related to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo uses many of the same movement patterns, but with more emphasis on takedowns and throws as opposed to BJJ's more ground-based, grappling fight style.
