Monster Energy’s Barber (11-2) came Vegas Saturday night, looking to extend his two-game winning streak. Previously, the popular MMA fighter had victories over Montana De La Rosa in April 2022 and Miranda Maverick in July 2021. Barber faced a tough opponent in Jessica “Evil” Eye, 35, of Ohiowho came to Vegas to recover from a three-game losing streak.
Early on, both fighters wasted no time engaging on their feet with Barber firing pinpoint shots from range. When Eye started a clinch against the fence early in the first round, Barber took the opportunity to deal massive damage with heavy elbows to the head that visibly bruised his opponent.
In round two, Eye absorbed more elbows and punches, then rallied and pressured Barber with a takedown but failed to secure a submission. But Round 3 was all Barber, all day: When it mattered, Barber landed ranged headbutts and connected bigger strikes to gain the upper hand in the fight. In the end, the judges declared Barber the winner by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28).
Saturday night’s triumph over Eye extends Barber’s winning streak to three straight wins. Following the unanimous decision loss to Barber, Eye announced his retirement from professional MMA in his post-fight interview.
