Tonight’s title bout features Carla Esparza (9-2) taking on Rose Namajunas (2-1) for the championship. These two made it through the season of the show, each winning three fights to set up tonight’s championship bout.

The latest odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Namajunas as the favorite to win this fight, as she has been given odds of -185 to win, while Esparza has a money line of +150 to prevail.

Namajunas has emerged as the favorite because of her impressive run on the show, winning three fights by submission. Esparza won her three fights, but had to grind them out and use her wrestling. While not as impressive, Esparza’s wrestling could be the key to this bout. Namajunas is a great striker, but rather light, which should set her up for takedowns. Esparza also has more experience than Namajunas, which should play out. Look for Esparza to grind out another decision.
