According to UFC President Dana White, Jessica “Evil” Eye will be Valetina Shevchenko’s first title defense.
White made the statement during the UFC Brooklyn post-fight press conference a little over a week ago.
When asked if the UFC has decided who would face Shevchenko next, White replied, “I think we did. Off the top of my head we said we were going to do a fight with Jessica Eye. I think Eye is next. Yeah.”
After a four-fight skid at bantamweight, Eye returned to her natural weight class of 125 pouds to rack up three straight wins. She was last seen in action at UFC 231– winning a split-decision over Katlyn Chookagian in a percieved title eliminator bout.
Eye is currently ranked #1 in the official UFC flyweight rankings.
I can’t wait for the date 😈 https://t.co/NAG1EvvYOW
