Calvillo can have success standing up, but she has the most success when she gets the fight to the ground She is a strong wrestler and will probably look to get this fight to the ground. 

Jessica Eye stops 59 percent takedown attempts and that is going to be the difference. Calvillo is going to try and get the fight to the ground, but it won’t work. Eye is going to battle and keep control of the fight, which will be enough for her to come away with a victory. Look for this fight to go the distance.
