The third main-card event for UFC Vegas 11 this Saturday, September 19, will be light heavyweights #11 Johnny Walker vs. #12 Ryan Spann at UFC Apex in Las Vegas and on ESPN+.

Walker will look to enter the octagon and avenge his last two fights, dropping bouts to #9 Nikita Krylov and Corey Anderson. With a 17-5 record, Walker does have a victory over #10 Misha Cirkunov. Of those 17 victories, the 28-year-old has won 14 of them via knockout. He’s an extremely active boxer who lands 70 percent of his strikes, notching 4.01 significant strikes per minute. He absorbs 3.58 per minute and has a 30 percent defense rate.

His opponent Ryan Spann will enter with a similar record at 18-5. He’s on an eight-match win streak with four coming in the past two years. Spann looks to get on the mat as 11 of his 18 victories have come via submission with a 1.13 takedown average per 15 minutes.

This bout will favor Spann if he can make it mainly grappling. But it’ll be Walker who enters as the favorite to win.
