Cynthia Calvillo looks like a problem at 125 pounds.
After a successful run at strawweight — albeit with some issues on the scale — Calvillo was impressive in her flyweight debut, as she earned a clear-cut unanimous verdict against Jessica Eye in the UFC on ESPN 10 headliner on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. With a win over a former title challenger, Calvillo looks destined for the rankings in a new weight class come Monday morning.
