Davis-Eye booked for UFC 170

Alexis Davis will come off of an impressive showing against Liz Carmouche to compete at UFC 170 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The opposition for Davis comes in the form of flyweight-turned-bantamweight Jessica “Evil” Eye, who defeated Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 earlier this year. With a win, both women aim to inch closer to the UFC women’s bantamweight title, which will hang in the balance in the night’s main event when undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey faces fellow former Olympian and undefeated challenger Sara McMann.
