Another female bout has been added to the UFC’s return to Pittsburgh after a five year absence.
Jessica Eye and Bethe Correia will face off in a bantamweight battle on the UFC Fight Night card February 21st. Several Brazilian websites are reporting the news, but we are await confirmation from the UFC.
Eye (11-4; 1 NC) is coming off back to back decision losses to Miesha Tate and Julianna Pena respectfully. She is looking to get back in the title hunt.
Correia (9-1) is coming off her first loss, losing to former UFc champion Ronda Rousey in August. A win would also get her back in the title hunt.
With the UFC yet to announce a main event for the Pittsburgh event, the fight could take the spot atop the card.
If official, the match will air on Fox Sports 1.
