It was a big win earlier this morning from Singapore for Cleveland’s Favorite Daughter Jessica Eye.  A woman who was once considered one of the hardest strikers in MMA had fallen on rough times.  Losing four straight dating back to earlier this year.

She broke the losing streak with a win by Split Decision on January 14th over Kalindra Faria.  Her win today over Jessica Rose Clark was a much different story as the Rootstown Native humbled Clark from start to finish.  Eye is now 2-0 since moving to Flyweight and has her eyes set on the championship gold currently held by Nicco Montano.

Montano is set to defend her gold against a very tough challenger in Valentina Shevchenko on July 27.  That is actually a bout where the challenger is favored as many believe Shevchenko is already the uncrowned Women’s Bantamweight Champion after two close decision losses to current champ Amanda Nunes.  Eye would be a dangerous challenger for either woman.

Eye was very emotional in the cage after the big win, and continued to share that emotion only minutes ago on Twitter as shown below.
