"If someone stole $5 out my pocket, would I be mad?" Eye asked reporters at Thursday's open workouts. "She's stealing money out of my pocket. I need that money if I want to live, if I want to raise my future family one day."
Robbery seemed to be on Eye's mind Thursday, as she also claimed to be robbed by Bellator. That was in reference to submitting Bellator's then-reigning strawweight champion, Zoila Frausto Gurgel, in a flyweight bout at Bellator 82 in 2012.
"I was robbed in Bellator, when I beat their champion I wasn't given my title belt," Eye said. "And I feel like I've always had opportunities where I was robbed before. This is the first opportunity where I'm with a fantastic organization, that's going to help me capture it."
