We only watched the UFC guys’s flyweight title defended by Henry Cejudo with his TKO win over TJ Dillashaw over this past weekend at UFC on ESPN+ 1, and it loooks as the women’s flyweight title is going to be defended soon, too.
According to UFC president Dana White, who talked to reporters following the UFC’s introduction event on ESPN at Brooklyn, New York, the world’s leading MMA organization is set to give Jessica Eye the next title shot 125lbs. She will take on UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko for its name later this year, though White did not state when the belt could be defended. Together with the UFC running three or four cards per month until June, the advertising had a lot of holes to fill and Shevchenko vs. Eye makes sense as a main event for a Fight Night card ESPN+, or perhaps even as a co-main event to get a pay-per-view.
White told reporters about Eye getting the next title shot after somebody asked him when Joanne Calderwood — who called Eye out following her decision win over Ariane Lipski — was in line to fight for the name. There were rumors Eye was likely to be following for Shevchenko as they both fought on the same UFC 231 cardand now we know that is indeed true.
Eye (14-6, 1 NC) has rescued her career by making the movement down to flyweight. After struggling with a 1-5, 1 NC record for a bantamweight, Eye is now 3-0 in 125lbs. She has defeated Kalindra Faria, Jessica-Rose Clark and Katlyn Chookagian in her last three outings in order to get the title shot in the UFC’s new division. The fact she’s gone the distance in nine of her 10 UFC struggles is about going up from a finisher such as Shevchenko who probably has to be stopped so as to beat, but Eye has definitely looked enhanced at flyweight along with her obtaining another title shot makes sense.
Shevchenko (16-3) had a 4-2 record as a bantamweight from the UFC, but her two losses came against winner Amanda Nunes and she needed to make a go down in weight in order to find another title shot. Moving down to 125lbs has been demonstrated to be a great move for her since she ruined Priscila Cachoeira within her UFC flyweight debut to find a title shot, then defeat Joanna Jedrzejczyk in UFC 231 to claim the vacant belt. Outside of the Nunes fights, Shevchenko has appeared unstoppable from the Octagon, and it’s difficult to see anyone at 125lbs giving her much of a fight when she’s so much beyond everybody in the division as far as ability goes.
Obviously this struggle isn’t 100 percent official yet, but it appears likely to be formally announced soon, and when it does the oddsmakers shouldn’t have a lot of trouble lining the struggle. I’m fully expecting Shevchenko to be a huge favorite yet again, starting at least around -500 and possibly being steamed even greater. Shevchenko always receives a tremendous amount of aid from bettors while Eye traditionally doesnt get much of any, so this isn’t a hard fight to line. As great as Eye has appeared in her latest couple of fights since falling down from bantamweight, it’s hard to see her being the boxer to take Shevchenko’s belt.
