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.
