According to Angela Hill, the UFC is trying to rebook a fight with Tecia Torres.

The strawweights were scheduled to rematch at UFC 256 in December, but Hill was forced out after testing positive for COVID-19. Torres faced newcomer Sam Hughes instead and won by TKO due to doctor’s stoppage in the first round, one of her finest performances to date.

Now it appears that the UFC is revisiting the initial matchup, but Hill claims that Torres won’t sign the contract.

Hey @TeciaTorres heard you’d rather sit out till October than fight me, you signed the contract for Dec., what changed, u got paid for beating a last minute newb? Good to know ur still terrified of fighting me after all these years. Staying ready cause these bitches are scurd.

Torres was quick to respond, stacking both their resumes opposite each other to remind Hill of her accolades. “The Tiny Tornado,” who’s positioned three spots higher than Hill in the official UFC strawweight rankings, also shut down the matchup, stating that she’d rather fight someone higher ranked.

Torres (11-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) won their first outing by unanimous decision in 2015 in what was just Hill’s third pro fight.

After building some momentum with three straight wins over Ariane Carnelossi, Hannah Cifers and Loma Lookboonmee, Hill (12-9 MMA, 7-9 UFC) has dropped two straight razor-thin split decisions to Claudia Gadelha and Michelle Waterson.

Torres, on the other hand, snapped a four-fight losing streak, which included losses to current UFC strawweight champ Zhang Weili and former champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk, with back-to-back wins over Brianna Van Buren and Hughes.

Torres hasn’t responded to Hill’s callout as of this writing.
