Sijara Eubanks was removed from her scheduled Saturday bout on UFC’s Las Vegas card due to what UFC officials termed weight-management issues.

According to MMAfighting.com and MMAjunkie.com, Eubanks wasn’t present for the scheduled weigh-in on Friday. Her scheduled flyweight opponent, Priscila Cachoeira, made weight at 126 pounds.

Eubanks, a 37-year-old Springfield, Mass., native, owns a 7-7 career mixed martial arts record, including a 5-5 slate in the UFC. Her last bout was in December 2021, when she lost by TKO to Melissa Gatto in the catchweight (127.5 pound) division.

Cachoeira, a 34-year-old Brazilian, is on a two-match winning streak, having most recently defeated Ariane Lipski by first-round TKO in August. She has a 12-4 overall MMA mark, 4-4 for the UFC.

It was unclear if the Eubanks-Cachoeira matchup would be rescheduled.
