Esparza was the first UFC strawweight champion and is looking to generate some momentum towards another run at the belt as she returns to action since decisioning Julianna Lima last April.
Already have a fight booked, maybe next time 😘 https://t.co/q5zhLeeEes

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
“The Quiet Storm” is also trying to generate some momentum as she has two wins in her last five fights. She was submitted by Cortney Casey in her last fight at UFC 202 in August and is currently unranked. A win over her TUF 20 rival could do just that.
UFC Fight Night 105 is scheduled for Feb. 19 at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Junior dos Santos rematches Stefan Struve in the main event.
The current lineup is as follows:
Junior dos Santos (18-4-0) vs Stefan Struve (28-8-0)
Elias Thodorou (12-1-0) vs Cezar Ferreira (11-5-0)
Thiago Santos (13-5-0) vs Jack Marshman (21-5-0)
Alessandro Ricci (10-4-0) vs Alvaro Herrera (9-4-0)
Santiago Ponzinibbio (23-3-0) vs Nordine Taleb (12-3-0)
Reginaldo Vieira (13-4-0) vs Aiemann Zahabi (6-0-0)
