Sijara Eubanks


Dominates in first UFC finish
July 24, 2021
Eubanks defeated Elise Reed via TKO (punches) at 3:49 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 27 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Eubanks wasted little time in this one, throwing hands as a brief diversion before diving for Reed's legs and getting the takedown. It was academic from there, as Eubanks meticulously moved from position to position in order to set up the finish from mount. Eubanks is a skilled ground fighter with some power, but has had issues with her cardio in the past. If she is able to improve her gas tank, there is no reason why she shouldn't be able to climb in the rankings. Eubanks improves to 7-6 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Fades in loss to Pannie Kianzad
December 19, 2020
Eubanks lost to Pannie Kianzad via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was a typical Eubanks fight in the sense that she was fine when her takedowns were landing and not particularly effective when they weren't. Her best round was easily the first. She forced Kianzad to the mat quickly and managed to rack up 4:23 worth of control time in Round 1 alone. As the fight progressed and Eubanks was visibly exhausted, she became less effective. She landed the harder shots on the feet, but Kianzad wore her down with volume. Eubanks built up some good will following a shocking win over Julia Avila in September, but she lost to Ketlen Vieira two weeks later and dropped another here to Kianzad. Eubanks is now 4-4 in the UFC, with all eight of those fights having seen the final bell.
