“To be honest, I don’t think our specific fight is being promoted as much as it should be. It is what it is. I’m gonna just keep winning fights and then those things will come. I’m not really too focused on that. I guess I can look at it in a positive or a negative way. I can look at it as, ‘Hey great, females are getting on the card for whatever reason.’ And it’s a business. But at the same time, I can look at it in a negative way and say ‘Hey, it’s a business, so does that mean it’s all about sex sells, promoting yourself as that?’ So, I try not to focus too much on that. I’m just happy for my friend. Maybe if it was somebody else in that fight, I wouldn’t be as happy, but it’s all good.”

UFC Strawweight champion Carla Esparza is pulling no punches when talking about her role in the co-main event slot of next week’s UFC 185 event.
