UFC on ESPN+ 13: Cynthia Calvillo takes on Livinha Souza
The bout is part of seven fights that were announced on Tuesday.
Calvillo, 31, is making a quick turnaround after decisioning Cortney Casey at UFC on ESPN 1 in February. She also submitted Poliana Botelho at UFC Fight Night 140 in November 2018. But check out this Twitter exchange with Tecia Torres.
Just stop. You won’t fight Cynthia in California, Sacramento or Anaheim because you don’t want to pay 7% Cali taxes. We accepted either location locations, you said no to both. Cynthia is fighting in California. We’re moving on… https://t.co/UNXMTddoxQ

Souza, 28, is the former Invicta FC strawweight champion. Her two octagon bouts have been victories and is on a four fight win streak but Calvillo is her toughest opponent yet, at least on paper.
