Flyweight newcomer Cynthia Calvillo (9-1-1) leapfrogged into the title mix after win over No. 1 Jessica Eye (15-8-0) Saturday night at UFC on ESPN 10.

Somewhat of a recurring theme, Calvillo used a series of takedowns, along with some striking to keep Eye defensive on the mat for large portions of the bout. To her credit, Eye worked her way back to her feet and landed some big shots, but they weren’t enough to win the bout.

Eye’s best round was probably the third round, where she used her striking to keep the round on the feet, and landed a big right hand near the end. But one again, Calvillo came back with a takedown late.

The judges scored it 49-46, 49-46, and 48-47.

Calvillo’s win, while not spectacular, launches her into the title shot discussion and almost certainly leapfrogs near the top-5 of the division.

Marvin Vettori, Christian Aguilera, Mariya Agapova, and Tyson Nam all earned performance of the night awards and a USD $50,000 bonus apiece. There was no Fight of the Night award.
