A women’s bout between ranked flyweights Jessica Eye and Andrea Lee is being targeted for the UFC Fight Night event on Nov. 13.

MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin confirmed the news Thursday following an initial report by MMA Junkie.

Eye is the No. 12-ranked flyweight in MMA Fighting’s Global MMA Rankings, while Lee currently sits in a three-way tie for the No. 14 spot.

Eye (15-10, 1 NC) may be fighting for her job after losing three UFC fights in a row and four of her last five. A 35-year-old one-time title challenger, Eye most recently dropped a bloody unanimous decision to Jennifer Maia at UFC 264.

Lee (12-5), on the other hand, is hoping to build on her recent second-round submission of Antonina Shevchenko at UFC 262. Prior to that performance, the 32-year-old Texan lost three consecutive fights, including back-to-back split decisions against Lauren Murphy and Joanne Calderwood.

The UFC Fight Night event on Nov. 13 is expected to be headlined by a highly anticipated featherweight bout between former UFC champion Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez, although the fight has yet to be made official.
