But she’s ready to fight if called…
- Jessica Eye recently spoke about her father's health issues and his support over the years. Here are the highlights…
On Her Father's Health Issues: "He was collapsing, but he wasn't telling people about it. He was having eyesight issues. There were some things leading up to it that, now that we know, it feels like maybe if we would have paid closer attention we would have noticed. That's when we were like, ‘Hey, it's time to go to the hospital.' Then they did a CT scan and found the mass in his brain," said Eye.
On The Support of Her Father: "My dad was a single father for a long time," said Eye. "He's been my biggest supporter since I started with all this. He always had my back, always cheered me on, and was always there for me. He really enjoyed the fact that I was as competitive as I am, because that's how he is."
On Being Ready to Fight if UFC Called: "Absolutely I'd be ready," Eye said. "That's my job as a professional. My ability to fight doesn't go away. My ability to fight should be always there, regardless of what's going on in my life. That's how I've always thought about my career. No matter what's going on in my life, I will always fight."
