Ultimate Fighting Championship strawweight Angela Hill is in need of a new opponent after Alexa Grasso was forced off of their UFC Fight Night 135 bout, ESPN reported on Thursday.
Grasso was pulled from the card due to undisclosed reasons and will now have to wait even longer to rebound from a decisive first-round submission loss to Tatiana Suarez in May. That loss was the first time Grasso had ever been finished in her 12-fight professional mixed martial arts career.
Meanwhile, the UFC will likely find a replacement opponent for Hill (8-4), who is coming off of the biggest win of her UFC career after beating Maryna Moroz in February.
UFC Fight Night 135 will take place in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Aug. 25 and will be feature a pivotal lightweight main event between Justin Gaethje and James Vick.
No opponent has been named as of Thursday for Grasso’s replacement, although the full card and bout order have yet to be announced.
