A few days after they announced the battle of two Olympians at UFC 170, another bantamweight bout was announced by the UFC via twitter.
Alexis Davis will take on Jessica Eye in what would put either in title contention.
Davis (15-5) went 3-0 in 2013, including wins over Shayna Baszler, Rosi Sexton, and Liz Carmouche. About half of her wins came by way of submission.
Eye (11-1) is on an eight fight win streak with wins over Zoila Gurgel and Sarah Kaufman.
No word on if this will on the televised preliminary card or the pay-per-view main card.
