Jordan Espinosa vs. Mark De La Rosa booked for UFC’s June 13 event

A bantamweight showdown between Jordan Espinosa and Mark De La Rosa is the newest edition to the UFC’s June 13 event. 

The Schmozone made the initial report of the bout on Monday, May 18. 

Espinosa is in search of his first win in two bouts. He dropped two-consecutive losses, most recently a first-round submission defeat to Alex Perez at UFC on ESPN+ 24 on Jan. 25. 

He also tapped to a first-round triangle choke against Matt Schnell at UFC on ESPN 5 in August 2019. Espinosa earned one octagon victory, defeating Eric Shelton at UFC on ESPN+ 6 in March 2019.

Jordan Espinosa earned his UFC contract by finishing Rilley Dutro via TKO on Dana White’s Contender Series in July 2018.

The 30-year-old was slated to fight newcomer Zhalgas Zhumagulov in Kazakhstan on June 13. The location and bout fell through due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark De La Rosa is on a three-fight skid and is winless since November 2018. He most recently suffered a second-round knockout loss to Raulian Paiva at UFC on ESPN+ 25 on Feb. 15.

His two other defeats included in the losing streak came against Kai Kara-France and Perez. His last victory is a split decision win against Joby Sanchez at UFC Fight Night 139.

The June 13 card is still without an official location.
