The UFC Apex hosts its third event in a row as UFC on ESPN 10 goes down on Saturday in Las Vegas. In the main event, former women’s flyweight title challenger Jessica Eye will be taking on Cynthia Calvillo. Going into her championship fight with the champion Valentina Shevchenko, Eye had put together a three fight win streak. During that time she earned decision wins over Kalindra Faria, Jessica-Rose Clark and Katlyn Chookagian. She would earn a title shot against Shevchenko in June 2019 at UFC 238. Shevchenko ended the fight in the second round, knocking Eye out with a head kick. Since then, Eye has gotten herself a win. In her most recent outing, she faced off against Viviane Araujo and defeated her by unanimous decision at UFC 245. Looking to climb back towards a title shot she was then matched up with Cynthia Calvillo.
Heading into the fight with Calvillo, Eye unfortunately missed weight, which could cause problems for her title hopes. As for Calvillo, a win puts her right into title contention seeing as she has never faced Shevchenko. Going into UFC on ESPN 10, Calvillo has put together a record of 2-0-1. In November 2018 she took on Poliana Botelho at UFC Fight Night 140, submitting her in round one. She then went on to defeat Cortney Casey by unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN 1. In her most recent outing, Calvillo took on Marina Rodriguez at UFC on ESPN 7. After three rounds, it was announced that the fight had been deemed a majority draw. Heading into Saturday, Calvillo looks to keep the unbeaten streak alive as she looks to claim a title shot.
