Jordan Espinosa is looking to get back in the win column this Saturday as the UFC heads to the Tar Heel State.
Espinosa will take on Alex Perez in an exciting lightweight matchup at UFC on ESPN+ 24. The event takes place at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC and will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Curtis Blaydes and former champion Junior dos Santos.
The Scrap recently caught up with the 30-year-old Espinosa to discuss how he’s been waiting for an opportunity to compete since his August submission loss to Matt Schnell, what was so disappointing about that afternoon at UFC Newark, why he feels the preparation for a fighter like Perez is different than any other fight in his career, thoughts on Henry Cejudo no longer being the UFC flyweight champion, what he hopes to accomplish on Saturday night, and more.
