It is like being in Bizarro World, when it comes to UFC ‘not-a-flyweight’, Sijara Eubanks. Her struggles making weight were very well documented on TUF 26 and have continued on into her UFC career. For some reason, she just refuses to own up to it.
She was denied the chance at becoming TUF champ when she was pulled from the TUF 26 finale for kidney failure. Since that time she has yelled at both Dana White and Joe Rogan for having opinions on her weight issues. Originally she was scheduled to fight Valentina Shevchenko for the women’s flyweight title, but that fight was cancelled for Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis.
Ironically, Sijara missed weight for her fight with Roxanne Modafferi yesterday. She still will not own it. In fact, all she has done is deflect and place the blame elsewhere.

Crazy amount of immaturity. First acts immature about not getting main event at 3-2. Then doesn’t do her job and make weight. Time to grow up and be a pro. https://t.co/r59DQMg7gU
