… Sijara Eubanks pulling off the upset win over Roxanne Modafferi in the second of two semifinals. Nicco Montano had beaten Barb Honchak in the other semi, so the top two seeds were eliminated by the #12 and #14 seeds, respectively. In their professional careers, Eubanks and Montano have a combined record of 5-4, with both women coming off losses pre-TUF. All that mattered for them was getting through the sixteen-woman field, and now they’ll have a shot at UFC gold in just a couple of days.
