Another bout is added to the first UFC card of 2023 as Priscila Cachoeira is scheduled to face Sijara Eubanks at UFC Vegas 67.
UFC will start 2023 with a Fight Night event on January 14 at Apex Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Carlos Antunes of Canal Encarada is reporting that UFC has added Cachoeira vs Eubanks bout is rebooked for this event.
The pair was previously in discussion for a bout in July 2021, but Cachoeira pulled out of the card. Eubanks then defeated Elise Reed at that event via first-round TKO.
Since then, Eubanks only had one more fight in UFC in December 2021 where she lost to Melissa Gatto via third-round TKO. She was expected to face Maryna Moroz in 2022, but that bout was postponed twice before being cancelled.
After starting her UFC run with 3 losses in a row, Priscila Cachoeira is now 4-1 in her last 5 bouts. She has two wins in 2022 over Ji Yeon Kim in February and Ariane Lipski in August. She defeated Shana Dobson and Gina Mazany before a loss to Gillian Robertson.
A middleweight bout between Kevin Gastelum and Nassourdine Imavov is scheduled as the main event of UFC Vegas 67.
Umar Nurmagomedov vs Raoni Barcelos, Geoff Neal vs Shavkat Rakhmonov and Omar Morales vs Mateusz Rębecki are some of the other notable bouts on the card.
