Report: Lauren Murphy vs Sijara Eubanks in the works

TUF 26 rivals Sijara Eubanks and Lauren Murphy are unofficially being targeted for a UFC Fight Night card in Uttica, N.Y.

Sarj Eubanks earned her slot in the TUF Finale championship fight opposite Nico Montano in December. Unfortunately, Eubanks was removed from the bout due to kidney issues resulting from a brutal weight cut.

The last minute event forced the UFC to reshuffle the TUF 26 Finale line-up. Roxanne Modafferi replaced Eubanks in the main event, and Lauren Murphy gained the co-main event slot versus Barb Honchack.

Now, several months removed from the TUF Finale, Murphy will look to follow up the biggest win of her career, and Eubanks will look to make a comeback to the flyweight division.

Should this fight be made official, it will likely carry title implications. With Valentina Shevchenko as the clear number one contender and current champion Nicco Montano sidelined with injury, the top of the flyweight division will be interesting.
