A bantamweight brawl between Jessica Eye (pictured) and Leslie Smith has been announced for UFC 180.
The November 15 event takes place inside Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico.
Eye has had a rough go since joining the UFC two fights ago. “Evil” initially took a split decision over Sarah Kaufmann in her promotional debut, but the verdict was subsequently overturned to a no contest after she flunked her post-fight drug test for marijuana.
Eye then dropped a decision to Alexis Davis at UFC 170 in February.
Smith is hoping to build off her TKO victory against Jessamyn Duke. She had dropped three of four prior to July’s much-needed win.
Here is the show’s updated lineup:
Augusto Montano vs. TBD
Jessica Eye vs. Leslie Smith
(Pay-Per-View 10PM ET/7PM PT)
Erik Perez vs. Marcus Brimage
Ricardo Lamas vs. Dennis Bermudez
