Comes up short in title challenge
June 8, 2019
Eye lost to Valentina Shevchenko via KO (head kick) at 0:26 of Round 2 at UFC 238 on Saturday in Chicago.
Eye was a huge underdog in this fight, and she did not get to show anything before being stopped. In the first round, Shevchenko scored a takedown and nearly finished via submission from the top. In the second, the champion decided to fight at distance. She unleashed a huge head kick. Eye was out before she hit the ground. The flyweight division is very shallow, so Eye might fight her way to another title shot. However, this was very decisive.
Granted shot at flyweight title
March 11, 2019
Eye will challenge Valentina Shevchenko for the flyweight title at UFC 238 on June 8.
Five years into her career, Eye has the chance to challenge for the title when she meets with Shevchenko in Chicago. Eye is coming off a bout in which she barely squeezed by Katlyn Chookagian via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 231, but she was still granted her request for a chance at the title. Shevchenko is coming in off a victory over Joanna Jedrzejczyk and should enter UFC 238 as the clear favorite over Eye.
Barely sneaks by Katyln Chookagian at UFC 231
December 8, 2018
Eye defeated Katlyn Chookagian via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 231 on Saturday in Toronto.
Apparently Eye feels that another mediocre performance that she might not have even deserved to win is grounds for a shot at the winner of tonight's UFC Women's Flyweight Championship fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Nearly five years into her UFC career, Eye has barely improved. She's tough and does a nice job of pushing forward, but she's a one-dimensional boxer with zero (she doesn't have a single career win via knockout) stopping power. Eye would find herself as a monumental underdog if the company (foolishly) grants her request for a title shot.
Matched against Katlyn Chookagian
October 12, 2018
Eye will face Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 231 in Toronto on Dec. 8, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.
Eye has followed up a four-match losing streak with a pair of victories, beating Kalindra Faria by split decision in January and Jessica-Rose Clark by unanimous decision in June. Her opponent, Chookagian, who stands three inches taller at 5-foot-9, has lost just once in 12 fights in her professional career, most recently defeating Alexis Davis by unanimous decision in July.
Continues flyweight resurgence at UFC Singapore
June 23, 2018
Eye defeated Jessica-Rose Clark via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night in Singapore.
Eye has revived her career in the flyweight division. She had lost four-straight fights at bantamweight, but since the move, she has now won back-to-back fights for the first time since 2013. Against Clark, Eye made it a point to lead and beat her opponent to the punch. She got the better of the exchanges. In the final round, she went to her wrestling to seal the victory. It will be interesting to see what happens to her career going forward in the new division.
