A flyweight division attraction has been added to UFC Vegas 11 as Tyson Nam is in action against Jerome Rivera.
The bout was announced during the UFC Vegas 10 broadcast.
Nam (19-11-1) has won just one of three in the UFC with that lone win coming over Zarrukh Adashev at UFC Fight Night: Eye vs. Calvillo. Nam has previously challenged for the Fight Night Global Flyweight Title, losing to Zhalgas Zhumagulov by unanimous decision at FNG 86 in April of 2018. Nam has suffered eleven losses as a professional MMA fighter and eight of them came by way of decision.
Rivera (10-2-0) is going to be making his UFC debut in this bout and does so on the strength of a three-fight winning streak. Rivera competed on Dana White’s Contender Series Episode 27, defeating Luis Ronaldo Rodriguez by unanimous decision. Rivera has competed 12 times as a professional MMA fighter and just three of those bouts went the distance.
