Rising Flyweight Manon Fiorot To Face Jessica Eye At March 5th UFC Card

Rising flyweight Manon Fiorot will get a big test in her first fight of 2022, facing Jessica Eye at UFC’s March 5th show. Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie was the first to report the fight.

The bout joins a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.

Fiorot has yet to lose since joining the UFC roster earlier this year. She scored her third win in the promotion two months back, defeating Mayra Bueno Silva via decision.

Fiorot earned two stoppage wins before then, finishing Victoria Leonardo and Tabatha Ricci.

Eye, a UFC veteran of 15 bouts, will be fighting to break a three-fight losing streak. Her last loss was in July, dropping a unanimous decision against Jennifer Maia in July.

Eye recently had to withdraw from a booking against Andrea Lee due to illness.

The other bout reportedly known for UFC’s March 5th card is a featherweight bout between Edson Barboza and Bryce Mitchell.
