The UFC signed Jessica Eye to a deal, which was made official on “UFC Tonight” Tuesday evening.
Eye, a former Bellator champion, is 10-1 in her career and on a seven-fight win streak. She has competed at flyweight, but will move to bantamweight with the UFC.
Also, while nothing was made official, it is being rumored that Eye will face Sarah Kaufman, a former Strikeforce champion, in the debut for both fighters in the promotion.
Kaufman was set to face Sara McMann, but McMann was forced to pull out with an injury.
