LAS VEGAS – “The Ultimate Fighter” returned this past week for its 26th season, which will culminate with the crowning of the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion.
MMAjunkie recently sat down with all 16 cast members. Watch the video above to get to know Sijara Eubanks (2-2), who discussed quitting a job she hated before knowing if she’d made it into the house, her love for both Brazilian jiu-jitsu and punching people in the face, living the dream despite the grind, and more.
“The Ultimate Fighter 26,” featuring former UFC and Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez and former WSOF champ Justin Gaethje as coaches, airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FS1.
