Tonight’s UFC Vegas 20 card is down to just nine fights after losing another main card contest in the form of Ashley Yoder vs Angela Hill, with initial reports indicating a positive COVID-19 test within the Yoder camp.

Yoder vs Hill Rescheduled To March 13

This highly-anticipated strawweight division clash has been rescheduled to the March 13 event, UFC Vegas 21: Edwards vs Muhammad.

The news is the latest in a number of disappointments for the injury-plagued card. UFC Vegas 20 has also seen cancellations of contests between light heavyweight fighters William Knight and Alonzo Menifield (also COVID-19 related), as well as welterweights Ramazan Kuramagomedov and Alex Oliveira.

Hill (36) looks to rebound from two close split decision losses against high-profile fighters to re-establish herself as a threat at the top of the division. On the other side, Yoder (33) is hoping to establish herself amongst the top-15 rankings.

With Yoder vs Hill removed from UFC Vegas 20, the card is as follows:

Main Card

  • Heavyweight: Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane
  • Light Heavyweight: Nikita Krylov vs Magomed Ankalaev
  • Flyweight: Montana Del Rosa vs Mayra Bueno Silva
  • Bantamweight: Pedro Munhoz vs Jimmie Rivera
  • Featherweight: Alex Caceres vs Kevin Croom

Preliminary Card

  • Lightweight: Alexander Hernandez vs Thiago Moises
  • Flyweight: Alexis Davis vs Sabina Mazo
  • Bantamweight: Ronnie Lawrence vs Vince Cachero
  • Light Heavyweight: Dustin Jacoby vs Maxim Grishin
