The UFC’s September 5th “Fight Night” card has lost a bantamweight bout, as Karol Rosa has been taken out of her bout against Sijara Eubanks. First reported by Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting, Rosa was removed from her fight after being admitted to a hospital during her weight cut.
It is not known whether Eubanks will get a short notice replacement opponent for Saturday’s event.
Rosa was looking to earn her third UFC victory on Saturday, extending a winning streak to five-in-a-row. The fight was a relatively quick turnaround for Rosa, who had defeated Vanessa Melo via decision in July.
