Up-and-coming flyweight bruiser Sijara Eubanks was cutting weight for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 26 live finale on Friday night (Dec. 1, 2017) in Las Vegas, Nevada, and somewhere along the way, things went off the rails.
As a result, Eubanks was sent to the hospital and unable to make weight. Taking her place in the TUF 26 Finale five-round headliner will be Roxanne Modafferi, who meets season finalist Nicco Montano.
In the night’s main event, the promotion will crown an inaugural women’s flyweight champion as Sijara Eubanks and Nicco Montaño battle in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 26. Eubanks, an Invicta FC veteran, earned her place in the finals with wins over Maia Stevenson, DeAnna Bennett and Roxanne Modafferi. Montaño, meanwhile, edged Lauren Murphy, Montana de la Rosa (Stewart) and Barb Honchak on her way to the title match-up.
Sijara Eubanks was hospitalized early Thursday morning and has withdrawn from the inaugural UFC flyweight title fight Friday at the TUF 26 Finale in Las Vegas due to medical issues, according to a UFC statement.
Stepping in for Eubanks against Nicco Montaño will be Modafferi, who successfully made weight Thursday morning for a scheduled fight with Barb Honchak.
Eubanks beat Modafferi in the semifinals of the TUF 26 title tournament by unanimous decision to earn the right to fight Montaño in the finals for the belt. But weight-cutting issues plagued Eubanks throughout the season and those appear to have knocked her out of a chance at UFC gold.
