June 14, 2021
Hill (13-9-0) agreed Monday to face Tecia Torres (12-5-0) in a strawweight fight at the UFC 265 on Aug. 7, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill and Torres previously fought one another back in June 2015 at UFC 188, with Torres prevailing in a unanimous decision. Since that fight, Hill has gone 11-8-0, most recently coming away with her 13th career MMA victory in March against Ashley Yoder. Hill was initially expected to face Amanda Ribas for her next fight, but with Ribas still battling the after effects of COVID-19, the 36-year-old will instead take on Torres in a rematch.

Ribas fight off again
StrawweightUFC
May 23, 2021
Hill's upcoming fight against Amanda Ribas at the UFC event on June 5 has been called off again with Ribas still feeling lingering COVID-19 symptoms, Nolan King of MMA Junkie reports.
ANALYSIS
HiIll and Ribas were supposed to meet at a UFC event on May 8 but the bout was scrapped just hours before it was supposed to happen after Ribas and her father tested positive for COVID-19. Ribas is apparently still fighting some lingering respiratory issues and has not gotten her taste or smell back. The UFC has decided to completely remove both fighters from the card instead of trying to find Hill a replacement. It's unclear if these two will eventually end up meeting down the road, though given how active Hill wants to be, it wouldn't be surprising to see her book another fight in the near future.

Blows past Ashley Yoder
StrawweightUFC
March 13, 2021
Hill defeated Ashley Yoder via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hill is now 2-0 against Yoder after taking another unanimous decision from her in their first fight back in July 2017. This one was more lopsided. Hill came out firing moments after the opening bell rang and never let up. Hill is one of the division's most creative and efficient strikers and Yoder has difficulty defending herself on the feet. Anyone who faces Hill has to try to limit her space and avoid fighting her in the clinch because she's deceptively strong and possess the ability to unload a lot of volume in a short amount of time. Hill's UFC record may be just 8-9, but there's a couple questionable judges decisions in there. She's undoubtedly one of the best fighters in what is a thin 115-pound female division. Now comes the challenge of backing this effort up with another strong performance her next time ou.
