UFC on ESPN+ 25 takes place this Saturday February 15, 2020, from the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, United States.
An intriguing flyweight showdown takes place on the main card between Montana De La Rosa and Mara Romero Borella.
De La Rosa (10-5-0) looks to rebound from the first loss of her UFC career after losing a decision to Andrea Lee at this past June’s UFC on ESPN+ 12 event. Prior to the defeat, De La Rosa was 3-0 with the organization with submission victories over Nadia Kassem, Rachael Ostovich and Christina Marks. The 24-year-old will make history at Saturday’s event when herself and her husband, Mark, become the first married couple compete on the same UFC card.
Borella (12-6-0, 2 NC) looks to rebound from a third-round TKO loss to Lauren Murphy at the UFC on ESPN 5 event last August. The 33-year-old from Italy is 2-2 since signing with the organization, with an additional defeat to Katlyn Chookagian and wins over Kalindra Faria and Taila Santos.
Ahead of the event, both women came face-to-face at the UFC Rio Rancho weigh-ins.
