UFC flyweight contenders Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo have agreed to headline UFC Fight Night on June 13, ESPN reported Saturday night.

The event does not yet have a known venue.

Both fighters last fought in December.

Eye (15-7, one no-contest) won a unanimous decision over Viviane Araujo at UFC 245, giving her four wins in her last five bouts. That one defeat came in a knockout to Valentina Shevchenko in a title bout at UFC 238 in June of 2019.

Calvillo (8-1-1) last fought to a majority draw with Marina Rodriguez, snapping a two-fight win streak.

Calvillo-Eye will get added to a June 13 lineup that includes Jordan Espinosa vs. Mark De La Rosa and Karl Roberson vs. Marvin Vettori.

The UFC has held three events since returning from its pandemic-caused hiatus, all at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., without fans in attendance. UFC 250 on Saturday is scheduled to take place at the company's Las Vegas facility, although the Nevada State Athletic Commission must approve that plan this week.
