The women's strawweight bout between Hill and Yoder was removed from UFC Fight Night just hours before start of the event due to COVID-19 protocols, the promotion announced Saturday. Yoder said in an Instagram video that a cornerperson tested positive for the coronavirus.
Hill vs. Yoder will be rebooked for March 13, the UFC said. Hill (12-9) is trying to end a two-fight losing streak after back-to-back split decision losses. Yoder (8-6) has won three of her past five and is coming off a win over Miranda Granger in November.
Hill and Yoder have fought before, with Hill picking up a unanimous decision win over Yoder in 2017. UFC Fight Night on Saturday will be headlined by a heavyweight contender bout between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and rising prospect Ciryl Gane.
