Jessica Eye Hospitalized, Withdraws From Andrea Lee Bout

UFC veteran Jessica Eye has been hospitalized and forced to pull out of her next fight against Andrea Lee. They were scheduled to fight on November 13 for the upcoming UFC Vegas 42.

Eye feels her condition was caused by an allergic reaction to fish eggs may be the culprit. She has tested negative for Covid-19.

She had been feverish on and off since last Thursday night. She was taken to the hospital once her health began deteriorating.

“Sunday I was admitted to the hospital with severe pain so bad, I could barely stand or not cry,” Eye wrote in her Instagram stories.

“They are still running tests and it looks like we have a clear diagnosis that I will share soon but I will be spending a few days in the hospital. My team and I have decided to pop in this fight and focus on my health. There has been struggling for a year and it’s my top priority. I already lost my gallbladder. I don’t plan to lose anymore.”

Cynthia Calvillo is likely to replace her in the upcoming bout.

Eye, 35, has been more of a journeyman in the UFC. She is coming off a decision loss to Jennifer Maia at UFC 264.
