So far, the UFC’s official schedule reads like this:
May 30: UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Burns (UFC Apex, Las Vegas)
June 6: UFC 250: Nunes vs. Spencer (UFC Apex, Las Vegas).
As of now, these are the only two UFC events that are officially confirmed by the promotion.
The UFC Apex will hold both of these events without fans present, as part of safety precautions taken against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Wednesday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) will meet virtually concerning the status of its ongoing ban on combat sports.
This ban, which has been in effect since March 14, is expected to be lifted after over 70 days at Wednesday’s meeting.
All subsequent UFC events for the time being from May 30 on are expected to take place at the UFC Apex, which also hosts season four of Contender Series this summer.
Fight Island is still under construction at this time and could potentially hold UFC 251 on July 11.
More on that later.
Saturday night, the June 13 UFC Fight Night found its main event.
A Women’s Flyweight contest between No. 1 contender Jessica Eye (15-7) and No. 10 Strawweight contender Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-1) will headline UFC Fight Night in three weeks.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported the news of the June 13 main event early Saturday evening.
Note: We will hold off on making an official call on this main event until the card draws closer.
Heading into the main event, Jessica Eye is the taller combatant, standing at 5-foot-6, two inches taller than Cynthia Calvillo at 5-foot-4.
How they got here:
Eye has posted a 4-1 mark over her last five fights.
Most recently, she scored a unanimous decision victory on Dec. 14 in UFC 245 vs. Viviane Araujo.
In the other corner, Calvillo has gone 3-1-1 in her last five fights.
Last time out, she fought to a majority draw against Marina Rodriguez on Dec. 7 in UFC on ESPN 7’s co-main event.
Because Rodriguez failed to make weight at the previous day’s weigh-in, that contest was a catchweight fight.
The Tale of the Tape:
Tapology shows that Jessica Eye owns a two-inch reach advantage (66 inches to 64 inches) heading into this fight.
