Two bantamweights on a card with plenty of bouts at 135 lbs. get in the ring as veteran Tyson Nam takes on promotion newcomer Jerome Rivera at UFC Vegas 11 this Saturday live on ESPN+.

Nam is 19-11 career, but just 1-2 in the UFC. He earned his first octagon victory with a KO of Zarrukh Adashev on June 13th in just 32 seconds. He earned a Performance of The Night bonus for that finish, and of his 12 career stoppages 11 are by KO or TKO. He averages 3.01 strikes per minute while in a UFC cage, and has yet to complete a takedown in the promotion.

Rivera earned his way to the cage with a win at Dana White’s Contender Series with a unanimous decision win over Luis Ronaldo Rodriguez just six weeks ago. Fighting out of Santa Fe, New Mexico and Destroya MMA, he enters with a 10-2 career mark in the sport with seven submissions and three decisions. “The Renegade” is 25-years-old and is moving up from flyweight to bantamweight here.
