UFC 256 is set to play host to a number of pivotal women’s fights, and another one was just added. TUF 20 castmates Tecia Torres and Angela Hill are set to run back their UFC 188 fight, according to MMA Junkie.
Tecia Torres vs. Angela Hill 2 Set for UFC 256
The first fight between the two went Torres’s way, utilizing a lot of clinch work to earn a unanimous decision victory. Since then, however, their careers have gone in different directions. Once considered a viable top contender at flyweight, Torres recently rebounded from a four-fight skid with a unanimous decision win over Brianna van Buren. That victory moved her record to 11-5. Although Hill lost just her third professional bout to Torres and was cut from the UFC a fight later, she became the Invicta FC strawweight champion and returned to the UFC just a year later. Although she has been on the short end of two close split decisions, Hill has become a fan favorite for her willingness to fight several times a year with an action-packed fighting style.
As previously mentioned, UFC 256 will play host to several other pivotal women’s matchups. At the top of the bill is the featherweight title between double-champ Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu standout Mackenzie Dern will look to continue her streak against former Invicta FC strawweight champion Virna Jandiroba. Amanda Ribas is also rumored to be on the card, originally scheduled to face Carla Esparza before “The Cookie Monster” was forced out of the bout. The UFC is actively looking for a replacement for the fast-rising prospect.
