Eubanks has had a drama-filled past few weeks. She was pulled from her upcoming fight with Jessica Eye and given a flyweight title shot versus Valentina Shevchenko in the than main event of UFC 230. After backlash on social media, UFC removed the bout and scheduled Eubanks to face Modafferi. Shevchenko would be rescheduled to meet Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 231 for the vacant flyweight belt.

  1. And guess what? If Eubanks wins every MMA writer will report how she deserves a title shot or a top Flyweight contender even though her win should not even count in the rankings because she isn’t fighting as a Flyweight. It’ll be like, nothing to see here folks.

    1. I dont think Eubanks should be expecting a title shot anytime soon after missing weight– especially given all the attention on her right now. I am all for the Chookagian/Eye winner taking the Shevchenko/Joanna victor!

  2. For the sake of her health, she should just move up to 135. Heck, the #1 contender at 125 beat the UFC’s #1 contender at 135, and almost beat their champ. If Sarj continues to fight at 125, she shouldn’t even be considered for a title shot until she’s made weight twice in a row.

  3. Stamina MC, I don’t even think those two were even Invicta FC level. OMG! They both looked terrible. Both slow, both unathletic, both looked clueless on the ground. And aren’t both suppose to be good at submissions and BJJ? They looked so bad, one was unorthodox and the other was slow and robotic. That was not even close to high level Women’s MMA.
