A rematch has joined the UFC 256 card for December 12th, as Angela Hill will fight Tecia Torres in a strawweight bout. News of the matchup was first reported by Damon Martin and Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.
The matchup joins a pay-per-view card which is expected to happen in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The first meeting between the fighters dates back to 2015, where Torres won via unanimous decision at UFC 188. The fight was Hill’s third as a pro.
Hill headlined a UFC “Fight Night” in her last bout, losing a five-round split decision to Michelle Waterson. She lost her previous fight as well, as Claudia Gadelha was favoured over her via split decision in May.
