UFC Makes Sarah Kaufman-Jessica Eye Official, Moves Another Bout

UFC officials confirmed the match up between female bantamweights for UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3, as Sarah Kaufman and Jessica Eye collide.

The bout will mark the debut for both former champions on October 19 from the Toyota Center in Houston.

Kaufman (16-2) is an ex-Strikeforce titlist, coming off a win in Invicta FC over Leslie Smith. Eye (10-1) held the Bellator title and has won seven in a row.

The decision to make the bout for that card has forced a planned George Roop-Francisco Rivera contest to be moved to November and UFC Fight For The Troops 3.
