UFC Apex Las Vegas, NV
Jordan Espinosa -160
With the Bantamweight fight here it is going to be interesting to see how the fighters do. Jordan Espinosa is coming into the fight as the favorite with a 14-7 record. However, Espinosa is also standing at 5’6” and 135 pounds. Espinosa does have a 69 inch reach and that could help him out in the fight
Coming to the octagon Espinosa will plan on heading into the fight with the orthodox stance, but he also tends to rely on the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighting style. The last 5 battles for Espinosa has seen him go 3-2. The losses have both been by submission and are in the last 2 fights. When it comes to the wins he has picked one up by unanimous decision, a split decision, but also a KO/TKO.
Mark De La Rosa is coming into the fight with a 11-4 record in his career. However, he is coming into the fight standing at 5’6” and 135 pounds. De La Rosa does give up some of the reach advantage as he has a reach that is standing at 65 inches.
The last five bouts for De La Rosa have been far from impressive as he is sitting on a 2-3 record. The losses have been by a KO/TKO, and 2 unanimous decision losses. The wins were by a split decision and he did win one fight by a submission victory.
The fight here will be one that is going to look great on paper, but once the fight starts it is going to be a fight that is fast paced and with the action going up faster it will make it harder for De La Rosa to keep pace. Look for De La Rosa to struggle in the fight here as Espinosa has more experience, but he is also a fighter that has the better skill level and definitely fewer losses in his last 5 compared to De La Rosa. UFC Fight Night Winner, Jordan Espinosa.
