Eye last competed under the Bellator MMA banner where she went 3-0 in the promotion. “Evil” last fought in June when she defeated Carina Damm for NAAFS promotion. Eye’s most notable win came in December when defeated former Bellator MMA 115 pound champion Zoila Gurgel by first round submission in 58 seconds.
Eye was released by Bellator MMA recently when the organization had decided that it wasn’t going to promote women’s fights at this current time.
It has been rumored that Eye will square off against Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 on October 19, but the UFC hasn’t confirmed that matchup at this time.
