By Tristen Critchfield May 11, 2021


A strawweight clash pitting Amanda Ribas against Angela Hill has been rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 189.

The fighters were initially slated to meet at UFC on ESPN 24 this past Saturday, but a positive COVID-19 test for Ribas resulted in the cancellation of the bout. MMA DNA was first to report the 115-pound rebooking.

UFC Fight Night 189 is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on June 5 and is headlined by a heavyweight duel between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Augusto Sakai. The Las Vegas-based promotion also announced that Maryna Moroz will square off against Manon Fiorot at the event.

Ribas had a five-bout winning streak snapped in her last outing, when she suffered a second-round TKO loss against Marina Rodriguez at UFC 257. Hill, meanwhile, ended a two-bout skid with a three-round verdict over Ashley Yoder at UFC Fight Night 187.
