Shows he's UFC-ready

Molina defeated Jacob Silva via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of four fighters awarded an official UFC contract.
This was an exceptional matchup between two UFC-caliber fighters, and Dana White even admitted after the show that Silva too could get the call if the company needed a short-notice replacement. It's Molina that will get the contract, however, as he mixed up his striking well and landed with several massive kicks and knees that would have finished any mere mortal. Silva shook them off and maybe even took the third round, but it was Molina that was the more active and technical striker for most of the fight. The flyweight division needs bodies, and Molina appears immediately up to the challenge. He trains at Glory MMA and Fitness, a quality camp featuring current UFC fighters James Krause, Grant Dawson and Megan Anderson. At only 23 years old, it's an excellent place to hone his skills and continue his upward trajectory.
