Tecia Torres and Angela Hill will run it back at UFC 256.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the strawweight rematch. The two fighters initially squared off at UFC 188, with Torres winning a unanimous decision.
UFC 256 is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Dec. 12 and features a women’s featherweight title tilt between Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson along with a bantamweight championship clash pitting Petr Yan against Aljamain Sterling.
Torres snapped a four-bout skid at UFC on ESPN 11, where she outpointed Brianna Van Buren on June 20. Torres’ slump prior to that victory included losses to three current or former champions: Weili Zhang, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Jessica Andrade. Torres owns notable wins over the likes of Michelle Waterson, Felice Herrig, Rose Namajunas and Paige VanZant over the course of her professional career.
When she faced Torres at UFC 188, Hill was in just the third bout of her professional career. She would be released by the promotion later in 2015 but returned following a four-fight winning streak that included a championship reign in Invicta FC. Hill has gone 6-7 during her second Octagon stint and has established herself as one of the organization’s most active fighters, competing four times thus far in 2020.
