Ashley Yoder
The Spider Monkey


Struggles continue in Vegas
July 31, 2021
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.
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.

Books matchup with Jinh Yu Frey
May 18, 2021
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 reports.
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.
Six-month medical suspension
March 16, 2021
Yoder is facing a potential six-month medical suspension unless she is able to get clearance from a doctor for ENT for a right ear injury, reports.
Yoder is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Angela Hill last Saturday. She has now fallen to 1-3 in her last four fights and the 33-year-old will be facing some pressure to get it done in his next bout. Yoder will not be able to compete again until Sept. unless she can get doctor's clearance.
Routed by Angela Hill
March 13, 2021
Yoder lost to Angela Hill via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
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.
Fight delayed
February 27, 2021
Yoder won't fight Angela Hill at UFC Vegas 20 on Saturday due to COVID-19 protocols, Alexander K. Lee of reports.
The fight will be moved to UFC Vegas 21 on March 13. One of Yoder's cornermen tested positive for COVID-19 Saturday, which led to the delay. The highly-anticipated rematch between Yoder and Hill could be elevated from the preliminaries to the main event on March 13, though nothing has been confirmed yet.
Booked for Feb. 27
February 20, 2021
Yoder will fight Angela Hill at the UFC's event on Feb. 27, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Yoder last fought back in November, when she picked up a win over Miranda Granger in Las Vegas. The 5-foot-7 strawweight will look to extend her winning streak to two.
