In a post on Twitter, Carla Esparza said that she wanted a rematch against her UFC 225 opponent Claudia Gadelha. Esparza lost that fight after a close split decision, with scores of 28-28, 29-28 and 29-28. She wrote:

That second tweet refers to something Esparza said in an interview with The MMA Hour, in which she accused Gadelha of greasing.

She said: “It’s pretty shady to me. I rewatched the fight, and my hands were slipping right off her. Even when I was trying to grab armbars during the fight, my arms kept slipping down. She’s a cheater, but it doesn’t really surprise me. In my opinion, she’s been a pretty dirty fighter throughout (her career), so it is what it is. … Claudia, you’re a cheater, straight up. It’s not cool. It is what it is, but it’s done with.
