UFC bantamweights Sijara Eubanks and Karol Rosa will finally collide inside the octagon at UFC 263 on June 12, multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting following a report from Combate.

UFC 263 will air live on pay-per-view and feature a highly anticipated flyweight championship do-over between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno.

Rosa and Eubanks were originally scheduled to face each other in September 2020, but the Brazilian was hospitalized in Las Vegas after the weigh-ins. Rosa said she "had no time to adapt to my diet and dehydration" after taking the bout on short notice.

Eubanks (6-6) fought and beat Julia Avila a week later at the UFC APEX, but dropped two decisions in a row versus Ketlen Vieira and Pannie Kianzad shortly after.

Rosa (14-3) competed once since her health scare, winning a decision against Joselyne Edwards in February to boost her octagon record to 3-0 with a trio of decisions that includes Lara Procopio and Vanessa Melo.
