Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Esquibel made her professional MMA debut in April 2011 as part of the Jackson's MMA Series. She won her first two bouts before signing with Invicta Fighting Championships.

Invicta FC[edit]

Esquibel made her Invicta FC debut against Liz McCarthy at Invicta FC 4: Esparza vs. Hyatt on January 5, 2013. She won the fight by split decision.[4]

Esquibel next faced Alex Chambers at Invicta FC 5: Penne vs. Waterson on April 5, 2013. She lost the fight via submission in the first round, the first loss of her professional MMA career.[5]

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

In April 2016, it was announced that Esquibel would be a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Joanna vs. Team Cláudia.[6] She was defeated by Ashley Yoder via split decision in the opening qualifying round.[7]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Esquibel made her UFC debut against Karolina Kowalkiewicz on October 21, 2017 at UFC Fight Night: Cerrone vs. Till.[8] She lost the fight by unanimous decision.[9]

Esquibel was scheduled to face Jessica Aguilar on June 1, 2018 at UFC Fight Night 131.[10] Aguilar successfully weighed in, but the bout was removed from the card the day of the event by the NYSAC due to a concern over a medical issue with Aguilar.[11] The pair eventually faced each other at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14, 2018.[12] Esquibel lost the bout via unanimous decision.[13]

Esquibel is scheduled to face Jessica Penne on February 17, 2019 at UFC on ESPN 1.[14] At the weigh-ins, Penne weighed in at 118 pounds, 2 pounds over the strawweight non-title fight upper limit of 116 pounds. As a result, the bout proceeded at catchweight and Penne was fined 20% of her purse which went to Esquibel.[15] However Penne then injured herself on the morning of the fight and the bout was cancelled.[16]
