Roxanne Modafferi will fight for a UFC title this weekend.
Sijara Eubanks was hospitalized early Thursday morning and withdrew from the first UFC flyweight title fight Friday at the TUF 26 Finals in Las Vegas due to medical issues, according to a UFC statement.
Modafferi will take on Eubanks against Nicco Montaño, who successfully weighed in on Thursday morning for a scheduled fight with Barb Honchak. (Honchak now fights with Lauren Murphy)
