Kidney Failure Led To Sijara Eubanks Visiting Hospital, Not Fighting At TUF Finale

First of all, I’m a champion. Point blank. I will be UFC champion, but it’s God’s will that it won’t be Friday night. I’m a gangster and I’ve cut more weight than most male fighters, and unfortunately there were some miscalculations this cut, no excuses, I worked my ass off and went out on my shield. I was hospitalized early this morning for kidney failure but best believe I’ma be right back training and right back after that belt. This game is full of ups and downs, true champs know that and bounce back. Nicco and Roxanne I’m sure will have a great fight, and best wishes to both those ladies. True class, those two. Nothing changes, I’m still the queen and I will claim my throne. Thank you to all my coaches, friends and family and the wonderful staff at UFC. God is good and I am truly blessed. #Repost @ufconfox (@get_repost) ・・・ BREAKING: Sijara Eubanks is OUT. Roxanne Modafferi is IN vs. Nicco Montano for the UFC women’s flyweight title!

Instead of putting the final touches on her championship match with Nicco Montano Friday night at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale, Sijara Eubanks was forced to explain what went wrong with her weight-cut.

Eubanks was sent to the hospital prior to even stepping on the scale to make the UFC female flyweight title fight official, forcing officials to replace her with Roxanne Modafferi.

“I was hospitalized early this morning for kidney failure but best believe I’ma be right back training and right back after that belt,” she wrote on her official Instagram account. “This game is full of ups and downs, true champs know that and bounce back. Nicco and Roxanne I’m sure will have a great fight, and best wishes to both those ladies. True class, those two. Nothing changes, I’m still the queen and I will claim my throne.
