A stacked fight night adds another outstanding bout to it’s lineup. This one takes place in the Women’s Bantamweight division, as Sara McMann is set to take on Jessica Eye in a top ten clash.
McMann who is in the midst of a two fight skid, dropping back-to-back bouts to Amanda Nunes and the current champion, Miesha Tate. In the two fights prior, she earned a decision victory over Lauren Murphy and dropped a TKO to Ronda Rousey, bringing her total to 3-1 since 2014. She will be looking to return to her winning ways on May 29th, but the task won’t be easy.
Her opponent, Jessica “Evil” Eye, is in an eerily similar situation, also having lost 3 out of her last 4 fights since 2014, riding a two fight losing streak to Julianna Pena and Miesha Tate. Both of these fighters are looking to cement themselves as true top ten talent, and this should serve as a crucial turning point in their respective careers.
