Espino won the TUF 28 title back in 2018 when he beat fellow finalist Justin Frazier. Espinos only professional loss came at the hands of previous Bellator heavyweight champion Vitaly Minakov back in 2011. Ever since, “El Guapo” has gone on a tear, winning eight-straight fights, not consisting of the 2 bouts he was triumphant in on TUF. Injuries have prevented the UFC profession of Espino, but this is a strong test for both gentlemen here, with the winner taking one step better to eliminating a top-15 challenger. Espino has shown durability, and with a slick submission video game of his own, this could be the first time we see Romanov go to a judges decision.
