Girl Fight!: Jessica Eye Vs. Alexis Davis Set For UFC 170

Another huge women’s fight has been added to UFC 170.

According to the UFC’s twitter, a fight between number five ranked Jessica Eye and number three ranked Alexis Davis will be added to the UFC 170 card, which is headlined by a championship fight between Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann.

The 11-1 Eye had her UFC debut in October at UFC 166 against MMA veteran Sarah Kaufman, where she won a split decision in an exciting back-and-forth scrap. Eye was originally a flyweight fighter, but decided to move up from 125 pounds to get a chance to fight in the UFC.

The 15-5 Davis won her first two UFC matches by unanimous decision; first a fight against Rosi Sexton, and then a match against Liz Carmouche.

The winner of this fight could put themselves on the short list of possible title contenders.

UFC 170 takes place Feb. 22 in Las Vegas, Nev.
