A collision between the two up-and-coming contenders has been set for May 18 at UFC Rochester. MMA Fighting confirmed the booking Thursday following an initial report by MMA Junkie. Ladd and Eubanks have fought once before, with Ladd winning a unanimous decision over the TUF veteran in Jan. 2017 at Invicta FC 21.
Eubanks (4-2), meanwhile, moves back up to 135 pounds after an up-and-down run in the flyweight division. “Sarj” was a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter 26 after going 3-0 on the show, however her expected title shot against Nicco Montano fell through when she suffered health complications while trying to make weight for the bout.
UFC Rochester takes place at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y. The main card will stream live on ESPN+.
