Ashley Yoder ‘honored’ to share card with Daniel Cormier’s final fight at UFC 252

Ashley Yoder is ready to kick off her new four-fight deal on a huge card this Saturday night.

“The Spider Monkey” takes on Livia Renata Souza in a strawweight matchup at UFC 252. The event takes place at UFC APEX in Las Vegas and will be headlined by Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight title against Daniel Cormier.

Ahead of her octagon return, Yoder joined MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck on What the Heck to discuss the matchup with Souza, her most recent split decision loss to Randa Markos at UFC Singapore this past October, dealing with an illness prior to the bout, what it means to be on the same card as Cormier’s final fight, when she signed her new deal with the promotion, how she sees the fight being entertaining for the fans, and much more.
