Honchak-Murphy completes TUF 26 card

Following Sijara Eubanks' withdrawal from Friday's TUF 26 Finale bout against Nicco Montano due to medical issues and Roxanne Modafferi’s addition to the five-round championship main event for the UFC women’s flyweight title, the card at Park Theater in Las Vegas went through some additional shuffling.

Now facing Modafferi’s original opponent, Barb Honchak, will be their TUF 26 castmate Lauren Murphy, who was on standby and in Las Vegas in time for weigh-ins on Thursday.

Also set for Friday’s card are the following flyweight bouts featuring TUF 26 competitors:

DeAnna Bennett vs Melinda Fabian
Christina Marks vs Montana De La Rosa
Karine Gevorgyan* vs Rachael Ostovich
Ariel Beck vs Shana Dobson
Gillian Robertson vs Emily Whitmire

*Gevorgyan missed weight for her bout and will be fined 30% of her purse.
