UFC Fight Night 171 Update: Sijara Eubanks, Sarah Moras to Clash on May 13

A women’s bantamweight clash pitting Sijara Eubanks against Sarah Moras has been added to the UFC Fight Night 171 lineup.

The Sports Daily was first to report the matchup. Eubanks and Moras were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 249 on April 18 in Brooklyn before that card was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. UFC Fight Night 171 takes place at Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, on May 13 and is headlined by a light heavyweight showdown between Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira. The card is expected to air on ESPN and ESPN+.

Eubanks began her promotional tenure with back-to-back victories but has since dropped consecutive bouts to Aspen Ladd and Bethe Corriea. The 35-year-old made it to the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 26” but couldn’t compete at the show’s finale due to a failed weight cut.

Moras snapped a three-bout losing streak at UFC 242, where she earned a third-round technical knockout victory against Liana Jojua last September. “Cheesecake” is 3-4 in her Octagon tenure and 6-5 as a professional overall.
