A clash between former title challenger Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo was targeted as the main event of the evening. Two people aware of the situation confirmed the news with MMA Junkie on Saturday after an initial report by ESPN.
The event has no official venue yet.
After falling to the weight of bantamweight flies, Eye (15-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) won three in a row, winning a title shot against champion Valentina Shevchenko. She failed in her quest for gold, suffering a second round knockout at the hands of “Bullet”, but since then she has rebounded with a victory over Viviane Araujo last December.
Calvillo (8-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) has just drawn a majority draw against Marina Rodriguez, in an expected straw weight fight where she missed her weight by four and a half pounds. She will debut 125 pounds when she faces Eye.
With the addition, the current program for June 13 includes:
- Jordan Espinosa vs. Mark De La Rosa
- Karl Roberson vs. Marvin Vettori
- Cynthia Calvillo vs. Jessica Eye
