Jessica Eye suffered her fourth consecutive loss in the UFC last month against Bethe Correia at UFC 203.

In an interview with FOX Sports, the number 13-ranked women’s bantamweight fighter also revealed that White even connected her to a sports psychologist who could help her deal with the mental aspect of the fight game.

Jon Jones' lawyer reveals USADA test results, claims supplement was deemed 'contaminated'
(mmamania.com)
The clash between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) continues in full force after "Bones" tested positive for banned substances prior to UFC 200 this past July. Jones has proclaimed he will return to action soon while a generic form of Cialis has been pinpointed as a possible reason why the 29-year-old popped under USADA watch. It now seems as if Jones is even closer to exonerating himself and returning to a sport he has dominated his entire career. According to Jones' lawyer, Howard Jacobs, the independent tests that USADA administered on the substances Jones took earlier this year have all come back positive, marking the entire crop "contaminated."
