Andrea Lee has been given a new opponent for her November 13th UFC booking, now being paired against Cynthia Calvillo instead of Jessica Eye. The change of opponent was confirmed by Farah Hannoun and John Morgan of MMA Junkie.
The new flyweight matchup joins a UFC card that is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Eye announced Monday on social media that a severe allergic reaction forced her out of the matchup.
“I was dealing with [an] allergic reaction to fish eggs that I didn’t notice on my sushi roll until it was too late,” said Eye via Instagram Story.
She detailed a week of medical struggles following the allergic reaction, including being recently admitted to the hospital.
“They are still running [tests] and looks like we have clear diagnoses that I will share soon,” said Eye.
Eye was looking to snap a three-fight losing streak that has developed.
Now with a new matchup ahead set for next month, Lee will be attempting to ride the momentum of a submission victory she earned against Antonina Shevchenko in May.
Calvillo will be fighting to break a two-fight skid that she has received over the past year.
