UFC Looking To Book Casey O’Neill vs. Jessica Eye For UFC 276

Undefeated UFC flyweight prospect Casey O’Neill could get Jessica Eye as her next challenge. The matchup is reportedly in the process of being booked for the promotion’s July 2nd pay-per-view card, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

UFC 276 is expected to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, as part of UFC’s annual “International Fight Week” festival.

O’Neill has yet to lose since joining the UFC roster last year. She scored her fourth win in the promotion just two months back, defeating retiring veteran Roxanne Modafferi via unanimous decision at UFC 270. That fight was the first time she went the distance in a UFC contest, as her three previous wins all came via stoppage.

Former title challenger Eye will be fighting to snap a three-fight losing streak. She has struggled to get a fight recently, as injury and illness has forced her out of two bookings in recent months. Her last fight was a decision loss to Jennifer Maia last year.

The other fight booked for UFC 276 is a bout between Miesha Tate and Lauren Murphy.
