Jessica Eye is hanging it up in the cage but she has some aspirations to continue fighting inside the squared circle.
Maycee Barber defeated Jessica Eye on the preliminary card at UFC 276 on Saturday night, but it was Eye’s post-fight comments that drew the most attention. Eye ultimately announced her retirement from mixed martial arts after the unanimous decision loss to Barber, but she then told the press gallery that was she interested in transitioning to a professional wrestling career for WWE or All Elite Wrestling.
“I’ve always wanted to dabble in wrestling, pro wrestling. I want to be the female Undertaker,” Eye told the gallery. “I want to ride a motorcycle to the ring and DDT somebody. I’d love to do that.”
“I’m excited for all of the other opportunities. I know that Jessica ‘Evil’ Eye doesn’t end in the UFC Octagon. Jessica ‘Evil’ Eye
finds her way in other directions, and I’m ready to embrace that,” she added.
