Jessica Eye is all set to fight Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 238 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois at UFC 238 this weekend. This is one of the most intriguing female fights of the year as Shevchenko’s flyweight title is on the line.
Ahead of her fight, Jessica Eye has said that Shevchenko has never faced her style before and it will be completely new for her. She said that her forward pressure will be key in this fight and will pose a lot of problems for Shevchenko.
“I have my ideas. She is a counter striker and we all know that” Eye explained. “We haven’t seen anyone pressure her the way I know how to. My pressure, my ability to come forward will be a factor in this fight.”
“I’m really hoping for a finish, but I’m prepared for five hard rounds,” Jessica Eye concluded. “My I don’t care meter is pretty high right now.”
Jessica Eye is coming off of a split decision win against Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 231 last December, she is currently riding on a three-fight winning streak. On the other hand, Valentina Shevchenko is also coming off of a dominant win against Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231.
