Virna Jandiroba wants ‘clear’ win over Angela Hill at UFC Vegas 54 so no one ‘cries’ later

Angela Hill had her fair share of controversial decisions in the UFC, so Virna Jandiroba wants to give her no reason to ”cry” after Saturday night’s UFC Vegas 54. Jandiroba also had her own close decisions inside the octagon, being on the wrong end of decisions against Mackenzie Dern and Carla Esparza, and agrees Hill had some controversial defeats in the past, too. Looking to get back on track against the former Invicta FC champion, the Brazilian wants a finish or a dominating performance at the UFC APEX.
