Carla Esparza will know about her opponent's submission skills and she will look to ensure the fight remains in a standing position. Esparza is at her best when the fight lasts long as she is one of the fittest fighters on the roster. If Carla Esparza can keep Tatiana Suarez quiet for the first few rounds, she will have an incredible chance of winning late in the contest. Carla Esparza is a former UFC champion and although it seems like she has no chance at the belt currently, she will be desperate to win this fight and move up the rankings to soon earn a title opportunity.
This fight will be between Suarez’s submission skill and Esparza’s fitness. I think the submission skill of Suarez will win. She is unbeaten and looks far better than anyone on the roster. I don’t think Esparza is talented enough to stop Suarez.
