Eubanks Steps In To Face Vieira At UFC 253 With Reneau Hurt

MMA news

Just a few days after taking out Julia Avila at UFC Vegas 11, Sijara Eubanks has herself another fight. “Sarj” will make a quick turnaround to face Ketlin Vieira at the upcoming UFC 253 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sept. 26, 2020. According to ESPN, Vieira’s original opponent, Marion Reneau, was forced to withdraw with an undisclosed injury.

It’s a big fight in the women’s Bantamweight division and a huge opportunity for Eubanks (No. 15) as a win over the No. 7 ranked fighter in the division would do wonders for her stock and championship aspirations. Winner of two straight, Eubanks has really turned it around after back-to-back losses to Aspen Ladd and Beth Correia.

Vieira, meanwhile, is looking to bounce back after suffering the first loss of her mixed martial arts (MMA) career at UFC 245, getting knocked out by current No. 1 contender, Irene Aldana. Prior to that, Vieira has won her first 10 fights including big wins over Sara McMann and Cat Zingano.

UFC 253 will feature the highly-anticipated Middleweight title fight between division kingpin Israel Adesanya taking on Paulo Costa. In the co-main event, Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz will collide for the vacant Light Heavyweight strap.
