 esparza's wrestling will be the best she's faced so Its hard to say but I think Its more then good enough. Jandiroba has a classic Brazilian ju jitsu backround. good fundamentals in wrestling and standup. 
I think esparzas problem is she came into the ufc at a time when there weren't many great wmma fighters. She never progressed at all she's a good wrestler with a brawler style stand up. But shes virtually the same fighter she always been. 

In jandirobas last fight against morandin she dominated the whole fight. In stand up. In wrestling and on the ground for a quick arm triangle sub. I think the wrestling might be even but everywhere else shes a level above esparza. But of course anything can happen.

I knew it wouldn't take long for this ridiculous new numbering system to break down: Now ESPN+ 9 takes place a week before ESPN+ 8. smh

Meanwhile MY system of 236.2 & 236.3 still work. Just sayin'

Any word on why they switched up broadcast plans?

Souza vs. Hermansson
Jack Hermansson, TKO, R1
Word on the street is the UFC doesn't think very highly of Jack Hermansson. This card has been scheduled for ESPN TV for 4+ months. It's been scheduled as UFC on ESPN 3 even before there was any fights even announced. It remained scheduled to be televized when it was Romero/Costa. It stayed the same, as scheduled when it became Jacaré/Romero 2. Annnd ONLY when it became Jacaré/Hermansson, was it then demoted to ESPN+... Sooo yea. they dnt feel Hermansson is worthy of being in a televized main event... That's kinda ******. Feel badd for Hermansson.

Perry vs. Oliveira
Alex Oliveira, SUB, R1
Thank youuuuu Sean Shelby & Mick Maynard for finally getting this matchmaker thing right for once! (Ok, maybe a little harsh, but I'm often left dazed and confused about matchups they make sometimes)

Lineker vs. Sandhagen
John Lineker, DEC
I looove a Cory Sandhagen scrap. Dude has easily become one of my top, top fav Bantamweight's. Easily. But is he ready for a John Lineker? Either way, win or lose, his stock only continues to rise..

@mulefloyd

Just make Souza vs. Hermansson ESPN+ 8 and make Iaquinta Vs Cowboy ESPN+ 9. Why is Tapology calling this card Souza vs. Hermansson ESPN+9?

That Perry vs Oliveira fight!  That's the real co-main of this event.  I'm freaking excited to watch Oliveira score another submission win.  This entire card is pretty damn good looking though.  Lineker vs Sandhagan I can see being the dark-horse fight of the night.

Burns vs. Davis
Gilbert Burns, SUB, R1
Davis has some skills but has not fought anyone on this level. The biggest question is if Burns will mess around on the feet for a while which he tends to do sometimes. If he does what he should and just take this guy down and tap him out it should be a very quick night. However Burns has at times stood up and kickboxed. My thinking is he will play it smart and do what he should to send Davis back to the regional circuit . My pick Burns by RNC in the 1st round.

Saunders vs. Sato
Takashi Sato, TKO, R1
I'm reeaaally starting to believe as I go thru this card, it's a night that's gonna make or break some UFC careers I'd imagine. I mean Arlovski, Ben Saunders, Jim Miller, Court McGee.. they're all on the downswing of their careers. Hell you could make an argument for Esparza... But outta those 4 guys, I believe Jim Miller, maybe Court McGee is most likely to win this weekend.. Not sure what another loss does for them tho.

Esparza vs. Jandiroba
Carla Esparza, DEC
Man I hate watching a Carla Esparza fight... just wish this chick would smash the **** monster... Kinda like Joanna did to her... But I'm not 100% sold on Virna's TDD, so because of that I am painfully choosing Esparza. It kinda feels like splinters under all your fingernails if you're wondering just how painful of a pick Esparza is for me.

@Brad I'm taking Sato but I can see Saunders pulling off a sneaky sub. Took Jandiroba but not confidently, I think if she just wrecks Esparza on the feet and subs her that would be a huge statement.

Ya know Fish, I 100% agree that Saunders COULD lock up a sneaky SUB on Sato as he's plodding forward... Esparza vs Jandiroba, I was waiting for someone to gimme their opinions on that fight... The other I could use some friendly opinions on, even more surprisingly, Rory vs. Fitch..... How's it go down?
