MMA Fighter Pretends To Be Dhalsim, Nails It.

If you’re a fan of MMA you understand the pageantry that is the weigh-in. Fighters dehydrate themselves, step on a scale, face-off angrily with their opponent and then frantically ingest a buttload of water and food before fighting 24 hours later.

And, every now and then, someone dresses up and does a pitch-perfect impersonation of Dhalsim.

The outfit is good, but the Dhalsim victory celebration is what really sells it.

This is Angela Hill. She used to fight in the UFC’s Strawweight division but was recently cut (some believe unfairly) after losing two fights in a row to top flight competition.

She’s one of the many UFC fighters — alongside Quiton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson — who have taken up livestreaming as a way to pay the bills between fights.

Angela Hill plays a lot of video games and tends to stream anything from Broforce to Bloodborne. But mostly Bloodborne.

Her Twitter game is strong. I highly recommend following.
