Only days after her last fight, Sijara Eubanks has been placed on assignment yet again, as she is now booked for a September 26th bout against Ketlen Vieira. The new matchup, which was first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN, sees Eubanks replace Marion Reneau, who was taken out of the fight due to injury.
The fight will be Vieira’s return after being handed her first loss as a pro in late 2019. Her last fight, which came on a pay-per-view card last December, was a loss to Irene Aldana. Vieira previously attained four-straight wins in the UFC.
The fight joins the UFC 253 card which is currently headlined by two championship fights. The card is expected to take place from Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Here’s how the card looks currently.
