Jessica Eye Was Visibly Shaking During Weigh-In After Brutal Weight Cut (VIDEO)
UFC flyweight contender Jessica Eye missed weight was one of three fighters to miss weight ahead of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night, with a fourth bowing out before the weigh-in on Friday.
Eye, a women’s flyweight contender, came in at 126.25 pounds — a quarter-pound over the limit — for her scheduled main event against Cynthia Calvillo.
The below video proves that her weight cut was brutal as she could be seen shaking uncontrollably.
“I don’t think I can stand, guys,” Eyes said as she hobbled off the scale. “I’m sorry.”
Eye previously competed in 135-pound bantamweight division, so it might be wise for her to return to her former weight class.
Eye recently moved to Las Vegas, and says the move is paying dividends.
“Moving to Vegas has probably been the best thing that’s ever happen to me in my life,” Eye told BJPENN.com’s Mike Pendleton recently. “We’re in a year in now to me now being in Vegas and I’ve just found myself to be a different person. It’s crazy because I encourage everyone to step outside their comfort zone and to move, but I’m so overwhelmed with the words to explain everything that’s happened with my move. I’m so thankful for Eric Nicksick, he’s been such a mentor, a teacher, a friend, a coach, he really has done so much for me, as well as Gray Maynard — the man is a UFC legend of all — as well as my brother, jiu-jitsu coach, and Bo Sandoval. those group of guys have been there for me. My move here has been absolutely incredible and it’s still developing.”
Jessica Eye currently holds an overall record of 15-7-0.
