Recently, the UFC confirmed that the fighters will battle in a flyweight contest at UFC 216, following an initial report from the Las Vegas Review Journal.
VanZant will be fighting for the firs time since December, when she was choked out by strawweight contender, Michelle Waterson. “PVZ” is 3-2 in her last five bouts.
Eye, meanwhile, is coming off a split decision loss to bantamweight Bethe Correia, and has lost four in a row.
That’s an interesting addition to UFC 216, which will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Tony Ferguson will face Kevin Lee for the interim, lightweight title.
