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.
