Sijara Eubanks vs. Sarah Moras is closing in on a new fight date.

The fight was originally scheduled to take place April 18 at UFC 249 in Brooklyn, N.Y. However, the card was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. A revamped lineup under the same event designation was set for May 9, but Eubanks (4-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) vs. Moras (6-5 MMA, 3-4 UFC) was not included.

Instead of fighting at UFC 249, the pair of bantamweights will compete on Wednesday, May 13. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after an initial report by The Sports Daily.

The May event takes place May 13 at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. The main card is expected to air on ESPN and stream on ESPN+.

Eubanks looks to turn things around after a winless year in 2019. The Springfield, Mass. native dropped back-to-back fights against Aspen Ladd and Bethe Correia, bringing her official record to .500.

As for Canada’s Moras, “Cheesecake” snapped a two-fight losing skid in her most recent bout in September. The 31-year-old defeated Liana Jouja by third-round TKO at UFC 242.

With the addition, the current UFC lineup for May 13 includes:

  • Anthony Smith vs. Glover Teixeira
  • Ben Rothwell vs. Ovince Saint Preux
  • Karl Roberson vs. Marvin Vettori
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Philipe Lins
  • Sijara Eubanks vs. Sarah Moras
