Road FC Women’s Atomweight Champion Seo Hee Ham retained her title with a quick and decisive victory tonight at Road Fighting Championship 45 in Seoul, South Korea. Ham knocked out former Invicta FC title challenger Jinh Yu Frey in round one of tonight’s championship main event.

Ham, who captured Road FC’s inaugural 105-pound women’s title in June after suffering a pair of controversial decision defeats at strawweight in the UFC, solidified her spot atop the atomweight rankings tonight as she floored Frey with a counter left hook and finished the fight with ground and pound.

It would have made for one of the greatest Cinderella stories in mixed martial arts history: Veteran Roxanne Modafferi, one of the pioneers of the women’s side of the sport, earning a UFC championship as a last-minute replacement.

But it just wasn’t meant to be, as another underdog story played out instead on Friday night in Las Vegas: Nicco Montano, the 14th seed on The Ultimate Fighter 26 tournament, became the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion.

Montano got the better of Modafferi in a hard-fought scrap, earning the title in the main event of the TUF 26 Finale at the Park Theater by unanimous decision on judges’ scores of 50-45 and a pair of 49-46s.

Roxanne Modafferi will be fighting for a UFC title this weekend.

Sijara Eubanks was hospitalized early Thursday morning and has withdrawn from the inaugural UFC flyweight title fight Friday at the TUF 26 Finale in Las Vegas due to medical issues, according to a UFC statement.

Stepping in for Eubanks against Nicco Montaño will be Modafferi, who successfully made weight Thursday morning for a scheduled fight with Barb Honchak. (Honchak now fights Lauren Murphy)

Eubanks beat Modafferi in the semifinals of the TUF 26 title tournament by unanimous decision to earn the right to fight Montaño in the finals for the belt. But weight-cutting issues plagued Eubanks throughout the season and those appear to have knocked her out of a chance at UFC gold.

The UFC’s inaugural women’s flyweight title fight is set and it’s a matchup that few could have predicted.

Sijara Eubanks, seeded No. 12 going into The Ultimate Fighter 26 tournament, punched her ticket to the TUF 26 Finale with a unanimous decision win over No. 1 seed Roxanne Modafferi. Eubanks will fight No. 14 seed Nicco Montano on Friday for the right to become the UFC’s first female champion at 125 pounds.
