Hannoun wrote, “A flyweight matchup between Jessica Eye and Manon Fiorot is headed to the UFC’s March 5 event, per multiple sources.”

Jessica Eye was last seen at UFC 264 and faced Jennifer Maia. Sadly, she lost the bout. In fact, she has lost three consecutive fights recently. She had hit a similar rough patch earlier as well. Out of 15 UFC fights, she has won 5. Hence, this upcoming bout will be extremely important for her MMA career.

Eye has a 15-10-0 fight record. Back in 2019, she lost the title bout against Valentina Shevchenko via TKO.

On the other hand, Fiorot has lost just 1 fight in her MMA career. She has an 8-1-0 record and believes in finishing her opponents. From 8 wins, 6 were through TKO. Thus, fighting Fiorot could be difficult for Eye. However, Eye has a lot more experience and has fought for several promotions in the past. This advantage could help her win the bout.
