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.
