First reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the UFC is targeting a flyweight matchup to headline an upcoming Fight Night card on June 13.
Former flyweight title challenger Jessica Eye (15-7, 1 NC) is expected to meet former strawweight Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-1) in a June 13 headliner.
Eye attempted to dethrone flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 238 but lost the bout via second round KO. She bounced back from her first flyweight defeat in the UFC with a victory over Brazil’s Viviane Araujo at UFC 245.
After missing weight for a strawweight contest, Calvillo announced her move up to the flyweight division– a weight she’s competed at prior to entering the UFC. Calvillo was scheduled to face Antonina Shevchenko in her UFC flyweight debut but the bout was canceled due to the coronavirus.
