UFC flyweight Jessica Eye goes off on Paige VanZant after pulling out of the fight and then refusing to fight once the UFC had plans to rebook the bout.
WATCH JESSICA EYE GO OFF ON PVZ BELOW:
The fight was originally announced in August for October.
VanZant then suffered a intervertebral disc injury while training jiu-jitsu. She will not need to undergo surgery.
The fight would have been a first at 125-pounds for both women while with the UFC.
Eye was supposed to take on UFC newcomer Aspen Ladd on the Ultimate Fighter Season 25 Finale in July, however Ladd, who was coming from Invicta Fighting Championships fell ill the day of the contest and the fight was scrapped.
A disappointed Eye immediately announced her move down to flyweight soon after the cancellation. The Ladd fight was supposed to be Eye’s first since losing her fourth straight fight at bantamweight. She now holds an 11-6 professional record.
Eye says this is not a UFC problem; this is a Paige VanZant problem and that she should be ashamed of herself.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
