Women's flyweight contenders Sijara Eubanks and Roxanne Modafferi first met in the semifinals of The Ultimate Fighter 26 last year. On November 3, they will face off again, with Eubanks seeking a repeat win over the veteran Modafferi in UFC 230 action at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In the main event of UFC 230, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, Daniel Cormier defends his UFC heavyweight crown against Derrick Lewis.
A decorated jiu-jitsu black belt, Eubanks moved to the world of pro MMA in 2015, and after making it to the finals of TUF 26, she made a successful UFC debut in June with a win over Lauren Murphy. Next month, she will seek her second Octagon win against Modafferi, a women's MMA pioneer who is coming off an impressive second-round TKO of Barb Honchak in July.
