The funeral of Aretha Franklin made headlines for all the wrong reasons. At the event, Pastor Charles Ellis III was seen groping American singer Ariana Grande and the news evoked reactions from all over the world.
And now, UFC fighters Angela Hill and Jessica Penne have voiced their take on the situation. But unlike most of the other reactions, Hill and Penne decided to figure out a solution for the whole fiasco.
They posted a video on their YouTube channel to explain self-defence techniques which can be used during such situations.
Hill also showcased her humour sense while tweeting out the video from her Twitter page. She used the term ‘Ariana Grande’ed’ and also took a shot at the preachers. You can see the video below.

The Two Straws
If you thought this was funny, Hill and Penne have many more videos on their YouTube channel named 2Straws. The Two Straws series started back in March 2018 with a simple breakdown of Invicta FC 28. They’ve been breaking down numerous all the major events ever since. Both the fighters train at Alliance MMA and are close friends as well.
As for their MMA careers, Angela is currently 8-5 in her career. She recently fought at UFC Fight Night 135 a couple of weeks back where she suffered a split decision defeat to Cortney Casey-Sanchez. She has fought five times in the UFC so far and is 3-2 at the moment.
Penne, meanwhile, is on a three-fight losing streak at the moment. She is 12-5 in her career and lost to the likes of Danielle Taylor, Jessica Andrade and former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her last three fights. She was on a two-fight winning streak prior to this forgettable patch. Penne’s last fight came in April 2017 at UFC Fight Night 108.
