9:47 p.m. UPDATE: Jordan Espinosa wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26).

It was a dominant performance in both the stand up and in mat wrestling. Espinosa had a 92-36 strikes landed lead late in the fight, and it felt even bigger than that. A comfortable win for the favorite.

3:10 p.m. UPDATE: DraftKings Sportsbook posted their latest fight day betting splits. The betting public is following the experts for this fight. 53 percent of handle and 59 percent of total bets are on the favored Espinosa (-177).

Two flyweights moving up a level to bantamweight face off when Jordan Espinosa takes on Mark De La Rosa at UFC Fight Night on ESPN this Saturday, June 13th.

Espinosa is 14-7 in his MMA career, but just 1-2 in the UFC despite being ranked #13 at flyweight right now. He’s tapped out in the first round of his last two matches to Matt Schnell and Alex Perez, but the 30-year-old Findlay, Ohio resident has nine career stoppages. Seven of those are by submission, and he’ll look to fight on the ground this evening.

De La Rosa is 11-4 overall, but just 2-4 in the UFC, and could be fighting for his place on the roster as an underdog tonight. He’s lost three in a row, two by decision to Alex Perez and Kai Kara-France, and got knocked out by Raulian Paiva in his last bout. His stoppage over Elias Garcia in July of 2018 was his last victory.
