Sijara Eubanks was forced to the hospital prior to weighing in for Friday’s main event at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale, leaving her spot in the championship bout vacant.
UFC officials moved Roxanne Modafferi into the opening, as the No. 1 overall seed on the recent season of TUF will now take on Nicco Montano for the inaugural UFC female flyweight title.
Modafferi was scheduled to meet Barb Honchak in a battle of semifinalist from the show. Lauren Murphy, who had her bout with Priscila Cachoeira scratched due to visa issues, will now face Honchak from the Park Theater in Paradise, Nevada on FOX Sports 1 as part of the main card.
