Marina Rodriguez (12-0-1) goes up against Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-0) in a Strawweight bout that’s the co-main event at UFC on ESPN7 on Saturday night at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC.

The 32 year-old Brazilian Rodriguez has a 2-0-1 record in UFC, with her last fight being a unanimous decision win over Tecia Torres in August. Prior to that, she beat Jessica Aguilar and had a majority draw against Randa Markos.

The American Calvillo, who is also 32 years old, was last in action back in February, when she had a unanimous decision win over Cortney Casey. Calvillo was scheduled to fight against Livinha Souza in July, but was forced to withdraw due to injury.

The one defeat in Calvillo’s career to date came when she was beaten by unanimous decision by Carla Esparza back in December 2017.

Rodriguez vs Calvillo Betting Lines & Pick

In terms of our UFC fight predictions, this looks to be a very evenly matched fight which could easily go either way. 

One factor worth noting is that Marina Rodriguez only agreed to take this fight after her fellow Brazilian, Claudia Gadelha, pulled out due to an ankle injury. Rodriguez does have a height advantage over her opponent though, which she could use to her advantage.

Calvillo’s excellent footwork and improved striking since she returned from suspension last year could give her the advantage in this fight and she’s our UFC betting pick on that basis.
