A women’s bantamweight bout has been scrapped from tonight’s (July 7, 2017) The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 Finale from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the last minute.
Jessica Eye’s fight against the debuting Aspen Ladd is off, as ‘Evil’ revealed on her official Instagram page:
The UFC confirmed the bout’s calling off, describing the reason as an illness for Ladd that most likely had something to do with cutting weight.
Eye vs. Ladd was supposed to open the FOX Sports 1 preliminary card beginning at 7 p.m. ET, but now Tecia Torres vs. Juliana Lima at women’s strawweight will move up to that prelimnary card from the Fight Pass prelims.
