Cynthia Calvillo replaces Eye and faces Andrea Lee

Strawweight competitor Cynthia Calvillo is meaning to snap the principal losing dash of her vocation when she takes on Andrea Lee.

At first, previous title challenger Jessica Eye was matched with Lee. Nonetheless, Eye had to pull out of the booked challenge in the wake of becoming sick. All things considered, Calvillo will take on "KGB" at UFC Vegas 42 and hope to refocus in the flyweight division. Eye gave an assertion about her withdrawal via web-based media. The session was first detailed by sources at MMA Junkie. Right now, the occasion is planned to occur in Las Vegas, NV., inside the UFC Apex.

Calvillo, 34, (9-3-1) last competed against former champion Jéssica Andrade. During the Sept. UFC 266 pay-per-view, the two fought to open up the main card for the marquee show. The contest lasted a single round, and Calvillo was unable to withstand the power of Andrade. After losing by TKO in round one, the 34-year-old assured her fans that she would be back soon and better than ever.

Lee, 32, (12-5-0) will now be facing Calvillo in place of Eye on Nov. 13. Recently, “KGB” earned one of the biggest victories of her career after finishing Antonina Shevchenko. The Texas native demonstrated her ability to end a fight, especially when she gets the fight to the canvas. After scoring a triangle arm-bar submission in the second round, Lee was welcomed back into the win column following three straight UFC losses.

Lee was able to snap her three-fight losing skid in her last fight. At UFC Vegas 42 Calvillo will have the chance to redeem herself in the flyweight division as well. With the addition of Cynthia Calvillo vs. Andrea Lee, here is an up-to-date lineup for the Nov. 13 UFC card.
