In what might produce the next “next” contender, Jessica Eye will square off with Alexis Davis in February at UFC 170.
The main event on February 22 features UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey against Sara McMann. Cat Zingano remains the No. 1 contender, but she is still recovering from a knee injury.
Eye (11-1) has won her last eight, three of which came in Bellator. She scored a split decision victory over ex-Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman in her Octagon debut earlier this year.
Davis (15-5) has won both of her UFC bouts, topping Rosi Sexton and Liz Carmouche. She is on a four-fight win streak.
