ICYMI: Cynthia Calvillo vs. Livinha Souza set for UFC Sacramento

Cynthia Calvillo has secured a spot on the upcoming Fight Night card in her hometown of Sacramento– and she’ll be taking on the former Invicta FC strawweight champion, Livinha Souza.

Calvillo (8-1) last fought in February, defeating Cortney Casey via decision in Phoenix. Prior to that, she submitted Poliana Botelho in the first round to get back in the win column.

Souza (13-1) made an impactful debut in the UFC when she submitted Alex Chambers. She followed that performance up with a split-decision win over fellow Brazilian standout Sarah Frota.

UFC Sacramento takes place on Golden 1 Center in Sacrameto, Calif., on July 13. The event will air on ESPN.

  1. This will be an interesting fight! Souza always surprises me, even back in Invicta. She’s always much smaller than her opponents, other than the Hamasaki fight when Hamasaki moved up.

      1. oh wow ! I had never heard Souza vs Esparza was a possibility ! At least I don’t think I did. Think I like the Esparza one better, but now Souza is hurt ! 🙁
