Itzel Esquivel (4-2) discusses her strawweight fight against Cynthia Arceo (5-2-1) at Invicta FC 41 on July 30. Itzel also explains why she hasn’t fought since May 2019, what type of training camp she’s had for this matchup and why a Contender Series spot should be next with a victory.
“I think it might go all three rounds. I hope it not going to. I hope to have a finish, but we’ll see how it plays out. But I do feel like I’ve been battle-tested in my career. I feel like I would do well and I feel like I could show what I have on the Contender Series. Hopefully, they come calling soon.”
