Officials block UFC fighter’s Black Panther cosplay for weigh-ins

Angela Hill wasn’t allowed to walk in wearing a simple but creative Black Panther outfit to the UFC weigh-ins.

Angela Hill consistently had very interesting outfits for her weigh-ins since her days in Invicta FC up to the UFC.

Hill wore a Sagat (Street Fighter) attire for her last UFC bout, which was a simple but fun addition to her mandatory Reebok uniform. The former Invicta FC champion hinted at something even better planned for this weekend’s bout when speaking to Bloody Elbow.

“I’m hoping I don’t get fined for it,” laughed Hill, who declined to reveal the costume at the time.

Unfortunately, her worries really had merit. Despite her still wearing the Reebok gear as part of the costume, officials rejected her plans to walk out in her latest outfit.

Hill took to social media to reveal that she wanted to pay homage to upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther during the ceremonial weigh-ins. Since officials didn’t allow the creative look, MMA fans will just have to settle with this image from twitter instead.

Hill went on to weigh in wearing the necklace and the Reebok clothes, but the Black Panther mask and gloves and mask were not allowed.

During her time with Invicta, an org that gives fighters free reign to show their own individual styles and personalities, Hill was able to pull off even more detailed and intricate attires to the weigh ins. Here are four of them from 2016.
