Prediction: wrong Esparza   wrong Decision  

This is the fight that Carla has been holding out for. I'm sure she'll out grapple Markos for a decision win. But after this fight she's going to have to start fighting girls that are closer in her rank, and prove that she deserves her top 5 ranking.

"Carla, do you want a fight?"
"YES"
"Claudia? Get you right back into the title picture"
"Errr ... I haven't had a good camp for 2 years ... err ... no"
"Ok"

**meanwhile on Carla's instagram**
"Waaaah! I've been asking for fights! I don't have any money! I have to sell my Harley"

"Carla, how about Randa? Will you fight her?"
"Yes, I'll fight her, she's not a hitter and I have better grappling than her"

**back to Carla's instagram**
"Fight is on! UFC Fight Night 105 February 19th in Halifax, Canada. This fight has been years in the making!"

@Yoss Yup. I love Randa, but I was hoping I wasn't the only one who noticed that. Though speaking of a fight years in the making (literally), Claudia vs. Esparza will be heated enough to be a FOX main event when that finally does happen.

Rooting for Markos here, just think esparza grapplefucks her to death

Prediction: wrong Esparza   wrong Decision  

Esparza got a solid win in her last fight vs Lima. As former champ and current #3 ranked fighter she should be fighting a Top 5 ranked opponent.

Although I will say that if she is going to fight an unranked opponent at least with Markos you get the TUF history to give it some additional interest.

She should be, but she's ducking the Top 5 it seems.

I liked Esparza till TUF,then I saw that she was like one of those high school kids that won't let any "losers" in the "cool" group.I thought she was like a tough nosed,cool,humble chick then she ends up acting like someone on the movie Mean Girls.I think you have that bitch thing backwards Areisius.
