According to a Feb. 3 report from MMA Junkie, hard-hitting Ohio native Jessica "Evil" Eye (10-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) can still fight Alexis Davis (15-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC 170 on Feb. 22, despite her split decision win over Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 in Houston being changed to a no-decision.
Eye, 27, took to YouTube to let fight fans know the fight against Davis is still going down as originally planned.
"So obviously there's a lot going on right now," Eye said in the video. "The one thing I can for sure tell you is I'm for sure still fighting Feb. 22, so don't you worry. I'll be weighing in on Feb. 22 at 135 pounds and fighting Alexis Davis on February 22nd. So take that guys, I'm still fighting."
Eye tested positive for a prohibited drug prior to her UFC 166 bout against Kaufman, but it was not performance-enhancing.
Eye was apparently using a blood-thinning medication due to a car accident she went through during her teenage years.
Despite what Eye had to say about the incident, her UFC 166 opponent, Sarah Kaufman, still wasn't thrilled to hear the news.
“It’s not a loss but also not a win,” Kaufman wrote in a text message to MMA Junkie, after hearing that Eye failed a drug test for using a blood-thinning medication. “I hate to see our sport marred by athletes who can’t seem to control what substances they put in their bodies. It’s disrespectful to their opponents and employers.”
While it's true that Eye did not test positive for performance-enhancing drugs, she did test positive for having a silky, smoky voice.
Eye's recent YouTube post proved that she has one of the nicest voices in the realm of female MMA. In her honor, here's a look at the top five nicest voices in the sport.
No. 5. Bec Rawlings
Invicta FC vet "Rowdy" Bec Rawlings has one of the most adorable accents in MMA.
Everyone loves an Aussie, especially when they pronounce the American "A" like "ayee" and "U" like "uh."
When Rawlings says "thank you," fight fans have their hearts just melt like Nutella and butter.
No. 4. Stacey Lynn
Stacey Lynn's lovely voice can be heard every week on the MMA Jam radio show.
The Nebraska accent is a very neutral one, but fight fans can tell Ms. Lynn is from the Midwest by the way she speaks.
No. 3. Gina Begley
Gina Begley has one of the most unique voices in women's MMA, as her thick Kentucky accent is heard across the airwaves every Monday night on the ProWMMA! Now radio show.
No. 2. Paige VanZant
UFC star Paige "12 Gauge" VanZant has a super cute voice that fits perfectly with her bubbly personality.
Fight fans will have the opportunity to hear more from her on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.
No. 1. Jessica Eye
UFC star Jessica Eye may not have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, but she absolutely tested positive for having one of the nicest voices in MMA.
Let's face it: Raspy, breathy female voices are extremely attractive.
