Yoder lost to Jinh Yu Frey via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN 28 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
In desperate need of a victory and entering as a (-160) favorite, Yoder had all sorts of difficulty on the feet against her much smaller opponent. Yoder appeared to be about twice Frey's size, but that didn't stop the later from getting inside and landing with regularity. Yoder doesn't have a knockout victory in her professional career, and it was surprising she was so content engaging Frey in a kickboxing match most of the night. Yoder has been with the UFC since December 2016. It's a remarkable statistic when you take into account the fact her record with the company is now 3-7.

Yoder (ear) is scheduled to face Jinh Yu Frey (10-6-0) in a strawweight fight at the UFC's July 31 event in Las Vegas, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Following her most recent bout March 13 -- a unanimous-decision loss to Angela Hill -- Yoder (8-7-0) was handed a six-month medical suspension due to a right ear injury. Given that Yoder has since booked her next fight four and a half months later, she's likely on track to gain full medical clearance from a doctor, which will void the six-month suspension. Yoder will be making her fourth appearance in the Octagon in less than a year when she takes on Frey; before her loss to Hill, the 33-year-old lost to Livinha Souza and defeated Miranda Granger.

ANALYSIS

Yoder lost to Angela Hill via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The only positive thing you could say about Yoder's performance is that she saw the final bell. Unable to stay within a mile of Hill on the feet, Yoder found herself tied up in the clinch repeatedly and on the receiving end of countless combinations from one of the division's best strikers. Yoder entered as the second biggest underdog on the card at +270 and it's easy to see why. While Yoder has a nice frame (5-foot-7) for the division, she doesn't have a knockout win in her career and doesn't have a submission victory since November 2016. 1-3 in her past four fights dating back to October 2019, time is running out on the 33-year-old.
