02:39 PM ET 12.31 | Following this past weekend's UFC 168 event in Las Vegas, the UFC announced an upcoming card in February would be headlined by a women's bantamweight title fight between champion Ronda Rousey and undefeated challenger Sara McMann. While the two former Olympians are set to headline UFC 170, there is no denying that another fight on the card looks to be a Fight of the Night contender and could potentially name the next challenger for Rousey's belt. On Monday night, the UFC announced a bout between Alexis Davis and Jessica Eye. Both women are ranked in the top five of their weight class, with Davis at No. 3 and Eye at No. 5. Cat Zingano does hold the designation as the No. 1 contender, but if Rousey wants to turn around quickly after February's event then she could be on a collision course with the Davis vs. Eye winner. UFC 170 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Feb. 22.
