Sijara Eubanks will take on a UFC newcomer in her next bout, facing Elise Reed on July 24th. News of the matchup was first confirmed by Farah Hannoun and John Morgan of MMA Junkie on Tuesday.
The new matchup joins a UFC “Fight Night” card that is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Eubanks was first set to face Priscila Cachoeira, although she has since departed the matchup due to undisclosed reasons.
Reed is getting her UFC debut after an undefeated run on the regional scene. She has been the CFFC Strawweight Champion since 2020, having defended the belt twice now.
She last competed in May, stopping Hilarie Rose in the second round of a title fight.
The bout will be her return to flyweight after fighting up at bantamweight for her past six appearances.
