A bantamweight clash between Aspen Ladd and Jessica Eye at "The Ultimate Fighter 25” finale has been canceled.
The UFC announced the news on Friday, citing an illness for Ladd. No further details were given by the promotion.
The “TUF 25” finale will proceed with 11 bouts. As a result of the cancellation, a strawweight tilt between Tecia Torres and Juliana Lima has been elevated from the Fight Pass prelims to the Fox Sports 1 prelims.
Ladd was set to make her Octagon debut after compiling a 5-0 record under the Invicta Fighting Championships banner. Eye, meanwhile, entered the matchup on a four-fight losing streak within the Las Vegas-based promotion.
