According to a Feb. 22 report from Inquisitr, UFC 170: Rousey vs McMann opens with a stacked preliminary card that includes a key bantamweight tilt between perennial 135-pound contenders Jessica "Evil" Eye and Alexis Davis.
Eye insists she won't call Rousey out if she wins. She thinks it'll happen if its meant to be.
“I don’t call people out,” Eye said. “I’m a firm believer that the right things happen at the right times. But hey, if (UFC President) Dana (White) wants me to fight (for the title), I’ll be there, and I’ll be ready.”
Despite Davis' strong BJJ game, she says she doesn't underestimate Eye at all.
“She (Eye) has good boxing, has a good game, and she’s a dynamic fighter – she gets in, she gets her points, and she gets out,” said Davis. “She’s not one who’s going to get into something like the Kaufman fight with me, that’s going to stand there and brawl. She’s going to get her points and pick her moments when she’s going to attack. And she’s no slouch in her jiu-jitsu game as well. That’s a mistake that a lot of her opponents make. She has some good submission wins, and while I’m very happy with the way my jiu-jitsu game is and I train with great athletes, great black belts, and world champions, you can’t underestimate your opponent at all.”
