    In the co-main event of Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night event, No. 7-ranked Bantamweight challenger Jose Aldo will square off against No. 15-ranked challenger Marlon Vera. Aldo is seeking to snap his three-fight losing streak, the longest of his impressive career. Vera is coming off a huge August win and has been in a groove over the past two years, winning six of his past seven fights.

    Historically, “Chito” Vera is an extremely slow starter. Still, he has also never been finished. While Aldo (a BJJ blackbelt) is rarely tested on the ground (90% takedown defense) – Chito is more of an opportunistic grappler who seizes upon moments in the fight rather than attacking takedowns (0.86 landed per 15 minutes, 42% accuracy) or submissions (1.2 attempted per 15 minutes).

    he took a lot of abuse last fight but he does decent in three round fights, he can win , but Chito no slouch.
