“I decided to part with Strong Style and open my own gym with a friend,” Eye told MMA Junkie Radio. “It’s been really cool. It’s been really excited. I’m kind of stepping away from everything and trying new things and I’ve found it to be really successful.”

Not much is known at this time about Eye’s new gym or the identity of the friend who is also starting up said gym with her.

The women’s flyweight title contender also says it is going to be fun to solve the puzzle that it Shevchenko.

“It’s going to be fun,” Eye said. “They get to see two, high-level females fight and it’s going to be fun. These are two gritty chicks. I’m pumped to actually fight her. It’s cool to be excited about fighting another talented person. It’s makes solving a problem, a puzzle a lot funner.”

There is no word yet on when the potential title bout will happen, which would mark the first ever defense of the UFC Women’s Flyweight Championship.
