UFC Bantamweight Jessica Eye is hoping for a return to the Octagon in early 2016. Eye (11-4-0-1 MMA, 1-3-O-1 UFC) is coming off two-straight losses against Miesha Tate and Juliana Pena. Jessica says she will fight anyone in the top ten, but likes the idea of fighting Bethe Correia.
“I’m pushing man, like I’ve already been saying some things online. Someone said: ‘just call Bethe Correia out,’ that would be an awesome fight, right”! Eye told Niall McGrath on last week’s Talking Brawls MMA.com podcast.
The Cleveland native said she would fight any one in the top 10 and believes a match against Correia would make for a fantastic stylistic match up.
“She’s a striker, I’m a striker, fire plug versus fire plug. I would definitely do it.”
The Strong style product is currently waiting for UFC matchmakers to find her an opponent and a spot on a fight card. Eye says she’d be happy to fight on any of the upcoming fight cards in Brisbane, London, Boston or New Jersey.
“I know the shows that they have coming up; Boston, Jersey, Australia and London. I’d love to get on one those cards, I’d love to get on all of them.”

Bethe Correia (9-1 MMA,3-2 UFC) is coming off a devastating KO loss to former UFC Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Eye admitted she’s been itching to call someone out on social media, but believes a potential fight against Correira would be a great for the fans.
“I mean, do I just go out on Facebook or Twitter and just be like; Bethe, This isn’t a call out, lets make some money and put on a show. Why do we have to call it, a call out. Let’s just fight”!
