UFC 256: Angela Hill pulls out with positive COVID-19 test

COVID-19 strikes once again

COVID-19 has struck once again at UFC 256.

Angela Hill (12-9-0) tweeted Sunday that despite taking all precautions, a positive COVID-19 test has forced her out her scheduled UFC 256 bout with Tecia Torres (11-5-0).

The UFC has not officially confirmed Hill’s removal from the card, nor a possible replacement for Torres.
