UFC: Jessica Eye-Leslie Smith Targeted for November 15th
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build the line-up for its November 15th debut in Mexico, as the promotion has announced that bantamweights Leslie Smith and Jessica Eye have verbally agreed to fight.
The card will be hosted by the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City, and will feature heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez taking on Fabricio Werdum.
Eye (10-2) will be competing for the first time since February, when she dropped a split decision loss to Alexis Davis. Prior to that she scored a split decision win over Sarah Kaufman, but the bout was declared a no contest, after Eye tested positive for marijuana.
Smith (7-5-1) is coming off a stoppage win over Jessamyn Duke, after being decisioned by Kaufman and Barb Honchak in consecutive fights.
Some of the other bouts that are booked for UFC 180 include Kelvim Gastelum vs. Jake Ellenberger, Diego Sanchez vs. Norman Parke, and Dennis Berumdez vs. Ricardo Lamas.
