One of the most thrilling preliminary fights of UFC Vegas 11 should be at flyweight when #13 Jordan Espinosa enters the octagon with #14 David Dvorak live this Saturday at Las Vegas’ UFC Apex and on ESPN+.

The 15-7 Espinosa will enter having defeated Mark De La Rosa two months ago. Prior to that bout, Espinosa fell to #4 Alex Perez and #9 Matt Schnell, and his style may have a bit to do with his difficulties with more skilled opponents. The 30-year-old is an aggressive striker, landing 5.49 blows per minute. He lands 60 percent of those while also defending 60 percent of the 2.84 he takes per minute.

Dvorak enters the cage with a 18-3 record. He’s won the majority of his fights via knockout and hasn’t lost a bout since 2012, but most of his matches have been on lower-tier independent circuits. He’s also more aggressive than most, landing 50 percent of his attempts for 4.47 strikes per minute.
