The most recent season of the Ultimate Fighter concludes tomorrow with the TUF 26 Finale at the Park Theater in Paradise, Nevada.
In the main event finalists Nicco Montano and Sijara Eubanks were to try and earn a six-figure UFC contract by winning the final fight in the tournament.
Eubanks struggled on the show to make weight and did not weigh in today. Roxanne Modafferi has moved up and will fight Nicco Montano.
Lauren Murphy who weighed in as an alternate now faces Modafferi’s original opponent, Barb Honchak.
UFC provided the below statement:
“Due to medical issues, Sijara Eubanks was hospitalized Thursday morning and has been pulled from her bout against Nicco Montano at Friday’s The Ultimate Fighter Finale. Stepping in for Eubanks to fight in the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight championship bout will be Ultimate Fighter 26 semifinalist Roxanne Modafferi.”
