UFC Reveals Full Card For June 13 Event Featuring Cynthia Calvillo Vs. Jessica Eye
Just a week before the UFC hosts another event, the promotion has announced the full lineup for its June 13 event. Dana White ended up telling ESPN the fighters participating. No specific name has been given for the event but it will air on ESPN+.
As previously reported the main event will be Jessica Eye v. Cynthia Calvillo in a flyweight bout. This will be Calvillo’s (8-1-1) debut at flyweight following a run in the strawweight division. Calvillo has missed weight twice while fighting in the division, most notably her recent bout against Marina Rodriguez. Back in December, the two fought to a majority decision draw at catchweight.
Eye (15-7, 1NC) is looking to stay in title contention. Following a one-sided loss against Valentina Shevchenko last June for the UFC Flyweight Championship, Eye rebounded with a win over Viviane Araujo at UFC 245 in December. The number one ranked flyweight won the bout via unanimous decision, despite missing weight. “Evil” is 4-1 in her last five fights.
The co-main event will be Marvin Vettori v. Karl Roberson. The two were supposed to fight on May 13 during the UFC Jacksonville event. Roberson (9-2) missed weight the day before the fight, coming in at 187.5 pounds, over the middleweight limit. He then had to be taken off the card as a result of a non-COVID-19 health issue. Vettori ended up getting into an altercation with Roberson after the fact.
Of note, Ray Borg will be competing on the main card, fighting in his second bantamweight fight this year. Following a stint at flyweight where he missed weight multiple times, Borg (13-5) fought Ricky Simon back in May. He lost via split decision and is 1-1 in 2020. He faces Merab Dvalishvili (10-4), who is on a three-fight win streak.
All fights will be taking place inside the UFC’s APEX Center. The Nevada Athletic Commission approved combat sports to return and will be keeping an eye on the promotion to ensure health and safety procedures are followed.
