The second offering of the night came from the Women’s Flyweight division as Jessica Rose-Clark went up against Jessica Eye. Surprisingly, Eye and Clark started off their dance at a comparatively higher pace than the first fight.
Clark was getting the upper hand early on as she landed some good punches which rattled Eye. Eye did land some of her own power punches towards the end of the first round as the women closed off a tight round which could’ve gone either way.
A slip from Clark proved to be the turning point in round two. Eye tried to take advantage of the situation and pushed Clark against the cage but to no use. Another high point in the round came for Eye when she landed a stinging head kick. Though Clark was throwing more punches, Eye seemed composed throughout the round which was also a hard one to call as both fighters had their moments.
Action is heating up in round three.
