Just a few weeks after her loss to Miesha Tate, Jessica Eye looks to regain momentum by taking on TUF 18 winner Julianna Pena at UFC 192 in Houston, Texas October 3. The match was announced Tuesday.
Eye (11-3; 1 NC) lost a unanimous decision to Tate on the UFC on Fox card in a title eliminator. She defeated Leslie Smith last November before losing a close split decision to Alexis Davis. She was on a eight fight undbeat streak before then.
Pena (6-2) has won back to back fights in the UFC after she won TUF 18. Both were first round stoppages. Pena submitted Shayna Baszler and Sarah Moras in the house.
The match will most likely be on the preliminary card, which will air on Fox Sports 1.
