Female fighters Jessica Eye and Sarah Kaufman will make their UFC debuts in October as part of UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3.
Eye, who just signed her contract with the promotion, confirmed plans of the fight on MMA Diehards Radio Wednesday night. It was rumored that she would face Kaufman recently.
A former Bellator champion, Eye was released from the promotion upon the decision to close it up. She is on a seven-fight win streak.
Kaufman is a former Strikeforce bantamweight champion who defeated Leslie Smith earlier this year. She was scheduled to face Sara McMann next week, but an injury forced McMann out.
