Jessica Eye vs. Julianna Peña Booked for UFC 192

A women’s bantamweight bout between Jessica Eye and Julianna Peña has been scheduled for UFC 192 in Houston.

ESPN.com initially reported news of the match-up on Tuesday, and was subsequently confirmed by UFC officials.

Eye (11-3) is jumping right back into the mix after losing a unanimous decision to Miesha Tate at the UFC San Diego card last month. Her run in the Octagon hasn’t been the greatest, going 1-2, 1 NC in that run, but she still stands as the No. 6-ranked fighter in the UFC’s official rankings.

Peña (6-2) won the 18th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and is 2-0 in the UFC. After winning the “TUF 18 Finale,” Peña suffered a severe injury that put her out of action for over a year and a half. In her return, she put on an impressive performance with a first-round TKO over Milana Dudieva at UFC Fight Night 63.

UFC 192 is scheduled to take place at Toyota Center. The headliner is a light heavyweight title fight between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Alexander Gustafsson.
