“It was freezing in the APEX, and I was cold. I have no body fat on me right now, especially after the cut. I apologize for the 0.2 pounds. I’m even mind-blown. I should have peed before I got on the scale, so thank you everyone. I can’t wait to perform tomorrow.”

Eye wasn’t the only fighter to miss weight for tonight’s event, as Karl Roberson and Zarrukh Adashev also missed weight for their respective bouts.

This is the second time in a row that Eye has missed weight for a bout, as she came in overweight for a fight against Viviane Araujo at UFC 245.
