On Tuesday, it was revealed the women’s bantamweight contest between Jessica Eye and Julianna Peña had officially been added to UFC 192 in October. Brett Okamoto of ESPN was the first to report the news.

Eye (11-3), will be looking to get back into the win column after dropping a decision to current number one contender Jessica Eye at UFC on FOX 16 in July. Prior to this setback she scored TKO over Leslie Smith at UFC 180 in November, where fans saw the woman known as ‘Evil’ punch her opponent’s ear off.

Peña (6-2), winner of the TUF 18 women’s bantamweight tournament, was last seen walking away with a first round TKO over Milana Dudieva at UFC Fight Night 63 in April. This marked her first appearance inside the Octagon suffering a gruesome injury in training camp, which resulted in her tearing ACL, MCL, LCL and meniscus.

UFC 192 is currently scheduled to take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. A lightweight heavyweight title fight between reigning champion Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson will serve as the main event.
