At UFC Rio Rancho history will be made as spouses will compete on the same card for the first time.
Mark De La Rosa will face Raulian Paiva at flyweight, joining his wife Montona De La Rosa who’ll meet Mara Romero Bortella in a top 15 Strawweight match-up.
At LFA 79 the Buys’s made history when JP & Cheyanne made history as the first spouses to compete on the same MMA card.
UFC Fight Night is February 15th at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, NM.
De La Rosa is a Texan now training out of Factory X in Inglewood, Col. The 25-year-old looks to rebound from a rough 2019 that saw him drop decisions to Alex Perez & Kai Kara-France. Brazil’s Paiva made his UFC debut on a 12-fight win streak, but has lost both his bouts. Including being stopped by a nasty cut in August, from Rogerio Bontorin.
