Alexa Grasso out of Fight vs Angela Hill with Cortney Casey Stepping in
The matchup between Alexa Grasso and Angela Hill that was slated for the August 25th Fight Night in Nebraska has been canceled. Alexa Grasso pulled out of the fight for “undisclosed reasons” per ESPN.
Coming off of a first-round submission loss in her last fight, this could be quite the negative hit to the 24-year-old’s career. At only 2-2, a win against Angela Hill (8-4), had the potential to put her back on track to becoming more than just a prospect in the strawweight division and a boost of confidence with a bounce back from the devastating loss to Tatiana Suarez.
Cortney Casey will now be replacing Grasso on UFC Lincoln card vs Angela Hill per Ariel Helwani.
This might be a blessing in disguise at least from Hill’s viewpoint as Casey is ranked one spot ahead of #11 Alexa Grasso.
