Jessica Eye and Joanne Calderwood face off on Saturday in a woman’s flyweight battle in the main card of UFC 257 at Yas Island. 

Jessica “Evil” Eye comes into this fight with an 18-5 record overall but she has lost two of her last three fights. Eye’s last fight cem against Cynthia Cavillo and in that fight she really struggled. Eye was taken down four times in that fight and that was the difference as she was defeated. Each of Eye’s last four wins have been by decision and two of those were by split decision. Eye is averaging 3.65 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.54 significant strikes per minute. Eye likes to keep the fight on the feet and she is only averaging 0.40 takedowns every 15 minutes and she is only successful on 45 percent of her attempts. Eye is also averaging 0.6 submission attempts every 15 minutes In this fight needs to keep the fight on the feet and she needs to make sure that she is one that is putting the pressure on early. 

On the other side of this matchup is Joanne Calderwood who comes into this game with a 14-5 record overall but like Eye she has lost two of her last three fights. Calderwood’s last fight came against Jennifer Maia and it was late in the first round that she lost by armbar. Calderwood is averaging 6.17 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 4.31 significant strikes per minute. Calderwood likes to get the fight to the ground and she is currently averaging 1.90 takedowns every 15 minutes. Calderwood is successful on 57 percent of her attempts and she stops 55 percent of her opponents takedown attempts She is also averaging 0.5 submission attempts every 15 minutes. Calderwood is a busy fighter and she needs to use that to her advantage in this one. 


Eye can be worn down and I think Calderwood is going to take advantage of that in this one. Look for Calderwood to get out to a fast start, Eye will have no answer, and Eye will get worn down. Back Calderwood on the moneyline to cash in this one.
