Alexis Davis vs. Jessica Eye added to UFC 170 in Feb.

go along with the main event pitting Ronda Rousey vs. Sara


Submission specialist Alexis Davis, fresh off her three-round

dominant decision victory over Liz Carmouche, will take on

Some would argue that Davis (15-5) could be in line for a title

shot already given her 2-0 record in the UFC and four-fight win

streak overall. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Davis is as

tough as they come in the women’s division and holds wins over

notable names like Amanda Nunes, Julie Kedzie and Shayna


A shot at the belt could still be in her future, but to get

there she’s going to have to go through one of the top prospects at

135 pounds in the UFC.

Jessica “Evil” Eye (11-1) burst onto the UFC scene in her debut

fight back in October when she bested former Strikeforce women’s

champion Sarah Kaufman in a close bout at UFC 166. The win marked

her eighth in a row overall, and now Eye will jump right back in

the deep end of the division as she looks to put her name into

title contention by facing Davis in February.

It’s unknown at this time what the final bout order for UFC 170

will be, but given both Davis and Eye’s status as top ten fighters

it’s likely the women will end up on the main card for the
