Esparza (9-2) and Namajunas (2-1) battled through three fights during this season of The Ultimate Fighter to make it to Friday’s live finale, where they will contend for the 115-pound championship at the Palms Casino Resort on Fox Sports 1 at 9PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Namajunas is the favorite to win this bout, as she has been given a money line of -170 to win, while Esparza has been given a money line of +140 to win the title.

Esparza came into the Ultimate Fighter as the Evicta world champion at 115 pounds. Evicta was the top place for female fighters prior to the UFC taking on women’s divisions. She won all three fights in the house thanks to her wrestling skills. Namajunas was just 2-1 coming into the show, but won all three fights by submission. She also has a strong muay thai game. The key to this fight will likely be conditioning. Esparza will look to use her wrestling, but Namajunas is strong off her back and can win the fight standing.
