She said, “Well the funny thing was we go into the room and it was on zoom. Because I think they are just getting a little background and information for the fight because they are going to be commentators for this weekend. So we go into the room and I don’t really know who I’m gonna talk to.”

“I was like oh, it’s gonna be an interview similar to this and I look at the screen and I’m like oh my goodness, they’re all there. So it was great I mean, It’s surreal right now, obviously being a fan of the sport for so long.”

“I mean I’ve been in martial arts my whole life and Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture I’ve been watching them since I was a kid and talking to some of the greats on an interview about my fight pretty cool, I can’t complain.”

What to expect from the fight between Sijara Eubanks and Elise Reed?

Going into the fight, Eubanks has not been in the greatest of forms, but will still enter as the slight favorite. ‘SARJ’ will also have the height and reach advantage over the relatively shorter Reed.

Reed has shown immense potential when it comes to her striking prowess. However, the fighter has shown weakness against takedown, and that might cause her problems against the larger Eubanks.
