As ESPN puts is:
Cynthia Calvillo is just what the doctor ordered for flyweight, one of the UFC’s most shallow divisions right now.
She’s a legit player who just improved her UFC record to 6-1-1 (1-0 at 125).
I like the move to 125 a lot for her because she was clearly having trouble cutting to 115, missing weight in two of her previous three fights. Calvillo’s performance showed that this is the weight class for her.
She scored a great, dominant win over the gritty veteran Jessica Eye.
Did she run out of gas toward the end? Sure, but that was her first five-round fight, and she took it on three weeks’ notice. Not bad.
