With Eye sidelined, Cynthia Calvillo has been tapped as a replacement and now she’ll face off with Andrea lee at the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in November.
Multiple sources confirmed the news to MMA Fighting on Tuesday with verbal agreements in place from both athletes. MMA Junkie initially reported the switch.
Calvillo will look to bounce back after dropping back-to-back fights for the first time in her career following losses to Jessica Andrade and Katlyn Chookagian in her two most recent appearances in the octagon.
Prior to those fights, Calvillo made a successful debut at 125 pounds with a unanimous decision win over Eye, which immediately made her a contender in the division.
That win helped Lee put a stop to a three-fight losing streak dating back to 2019.
