UFC women’s bantamweight Jessica Eye recently responded to champion Ronda Rousey’s comments on beating Sara McMann.
“Maybe (they weren’t) ready to fight, but that doesn’t mean that they (don’t) have all the tools, that they’re a great speaker, a great person, a huge advocate for the sport. Just because you don’t win a fight doesn’t mean you’re not technically ready for it. There’s other aspects to it, said Eye.”
Alexis Davis (16-5) Has two knockouts, seven submissions and seven decision victories. She has been knocked out twice and lost by decision three times.
“I know that when Alexis gives her a lot harder time than she’s expecting, it just makes me look that much better. So I’m hoping for a little bit more of a war. I think people are underestimating Alexis. I didn’t realize when we got on the ground that she was as strong she was, and she sort of neutralized me. With a world-class jiu-jitsu game, it’s going to match up well stylistically with Ronda.”
In her next two fights, she beat Liz Carmouche via Unanimous Decision at UFC Fight Night – Fight for the Troops 3 on Nov / 06 / 2013 and then Jessica Eye via Split Decision at UFC 170 – Rousey vs. McMann on Feb / 22 / 2014.
