Check out the latest breaking UFC NEWS
A flyweight bout has been added to UFC on ESPN+15 in Shenzhen, China.
A person with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the booking but requested anonymity because the UFC has not yet made an official announcement.
De La Rosa, 24, will return to flyweight after he shifted to bantamweight for his last two outings. “The Bumblebee” has split his four UFC appearances to date. His two wins over Elias Garcia and Joby Sanchez are bookended by losses to Alex Perez and Tim Elliott.
His opponent, New Zealand’s Kara-France, has won both of his bouts inside the UFC cage. In his promotional debut, Kara-France defeated Elias Garcia, before he turned in a highly entertaining split-decision victory over Raulian Paiva in February.
UFC on ESPN+ 15 is currently headlined by a women’s strawweight title fight between current champion Jessica Andrade and Chinese challenger Weili Zhang.
With the addition, the latest UFC on ESPN+ 15 lineup includes:
- Champ Jessica Andrade vs. Weili Zhang – for strawweight title
- Anthony Hernandez vs. Jun Yong Park
- Mark De La Rosa vs. Kai Kara-France
