Sijara Eubanks (7-6-0): Aiming to Turn Things Around
Eubanks is currently on a two-fight skid heading into this matchup. Her most recent performance was a unanimous decision against Pannie Kianzad back in December of last year.
Her fighting resume shows that she has two wins by knockout and five by decision. So far, her battles typically are decided by the judges but has thrown in some striking stoppages.
“Sarj” has a striking accuracy of 43 percent and a grappling accuracy of 46 percent. She lands 4.52 significant strikes a minute while absorbing 3.69. This is a solid ratio that should improve over time.
Eubanks has a takedown defense at 65 percent and a significant strike defense at 57 percent. She also averages 1.88 takedowns and 0.40 submissions every 15 minutes.
Elise Reed (4-0-0): Can She Make it Five Straight Victories?
Reed is looking to make it five straight undefeated battles so far in her career. Her most recent performance was a second-round TKO against Hillarie Rose back in May of this year.
Her fighting resume shows that she has two wins by knockout and two by decision. So far, she has shown a solid balance between her victories, so she will be interesting to watch moving forward.
Reed is coming into the UFC, making her debut against Eubanks. She is a CFFC strawweight titleholder and is also stepping up in weight class for this matchup.
She has a tough matchup on her hands, especially since Eubanks is moving back to a weight where she had previous success with. This should be a good test to see where she is at with her debut.

Both fighters are in interesting positions for their resumes entering this matchup. Reed is looking to make a good first impression while Eubanks is trying to get back on track.
Reed, who has experience being a titleholder in another league, still has a lot to prove in the UFC. Her debut could show her skills and potentially grab the win.
However, Eubanks is moving back to a weight where she is arguably a better fighter. Most likely, she will use this battle to get back on track and to fine-tune her skills to turn her resume around.
