This Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 124 early preliminary card features an exciting flyweight showdown between Kalindra Faria and Jessica “Evil” Eye.
Faria (18-6-1) looks to pick up her first UFC win after an unsuccessful promotional debut this past October, finding herself victim of a first-round rear-naked choke at the hands of Mara Romero Borella. The 31-year-old Brazilian is a known finisher who has stopped seven of her career victories by way of knockouts, as well as earning five submission wins.
Eye (11-6-0) will be making her first appearance in the UFC’s newly minted flyweight division. The 31-year-old will be looking to rebound from a four-fight losing skid, albeit hard-fought decisions against top contenders in the bigger bantamweight decision, Miesha Tate, Julianna Pena, Sara McMann and Bethe Correia. She owns a notable 2014 victory over Leslie Smith.
UFC Fight Night 124 takes place this Sunday January 14 from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. The early prelims featuring Faria vs. Eye will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 6pm ET.
