Eye-Eubanks Added To UFC 232
The UFC is looking to set up a contender for who ever walks out of UFC 228 as women’s flyweight champion, as Jessica Eye and Sijara Eubanks will square off in December at UFC 232.
On September 8th, Nicco Montano and Valentina Shevchenko will face off for they flyweight title in Montano’s first defense since defeating replacement opponent Roxanne Modafferi in December 2017.
Eubanks was set to fight for the inaugural flyweight title fight against Montano, but would be hospitalized due to a bad weight cut prior to the finals of the Ultimate Fighter 26, she bounced back from that disapointment by taking a unanimous decision win over Lauren Murphy in June.
Eye is undefeated since dropping to flyweight, with wins over Kalindra Faria and Jessica-Rose Clark, and looks to go 3-0 on the December 29th card headlined by Cris Cyborg defending her featherweight title against bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes.
Initial Report: Bloody Elbow
