A Bellator 95 bout between Jessica “Evil” Eye and Munah Holland has been nixed.
Eye on Sunday confirmed that she has had to drop out of the fight due to a back injury.
Eye had been trying to work through it, but eventually had to succumb to the injury and pull out of the fight.
“@munah_holland I am sorry and hope that they can reschedule it for June,” Eye apologized via her Twitter account. “The amount of heart break I have faced this week is hard.”
Eye (9-1) has been on an amazing streak, winning her last six fights, which includes submission former Bellator champion Zoila Frausto-Gurgel in December.
Holland (5-2) is trying to bounce back after Michelle Ould defeated her last September, ending Holland’s four-fight winning streak.
Bellator 95 takes place April 4 at Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., and features Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran defending his belt against Shahbulat Shamhalaev.
