UFC Vegas 20 will be down another fight later this evening (Sat., Feb. 27, 2021) live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as a women’s strawweight scrap between Angela Hill and Ashley Yoder has been removed from the card.

Per a recent UFC statement, the 115-pound rematch was nixed due to COVID-19 safety protocols. The bout has been rescheduled for UFC Vegas 21 on Mar. 13 (fight card details HERE).

Hill, who defeated Yoder via decision back in 2017, is coming off a busy 2020 campaign. The veteran contender went 2-2 with split-decision losses to top contenders Michelle Waterson and Claudia Gadelha. She was hoping to start 2021 off on the right foot but will now have to wait a few more weeks to get her chance.

Yoder, who has gone just 3-3 since her loss to Hill, is coming off a decision win over Miranda Granger back in November. The former Ultimate Fighter standout was hoping to spark just her second UFC win streak with a victory over Hill this weekend, but Yoder will now have a little extra time to round out her preparation.
