Carla Esparza defeats Yadira Anzaldua

On Friday April, 15 at Evolution Combat Sports Championship: "Friday Night Fights" in Clovis, New Mexico.

#14 ranked 115-pound fighter Carla Esparza (5-1-0) defeated Yadira Anzaldua (2-3-0) by submission (rear-naked choke) in the first round of their 115-pound professional MMA match.

Carla continues to impress, this is now her second victory in a row since losing to Megumi Fujii in the first round of the Bellator 115-pound tournament. Carla's other impressive victories came against Lacey Schuckman at 125-pounds, Karina Hallinan and Cassie Trost.

Carla will now prepare to face fellow Bellator tournament competitor Jessica Augillar in June under the Bellator umbrella. In my opinion this match with Jessica should be a contenders match for Zoila Frausto's 115-pound title, which hopefully she will first be defending against Bellator 115-pound tournament runner-up Megumi Fujii.
