David Dvořák is in hot waters after losing his last three matchups. The Czech started fast in his UFC career with three straight victories but has since dropped three unanimous decisions to Matheus Nicolau, Manel Kape, and short-notice replacement Steve Erceg. He'll be looking to get back into the win column by snapping his losing streak and taking the 0 of Taira.
Tatsuro Taira is riding a four-fight win streak in the UFC and is coming off his most daring fight yet. He fought Edgar Cháirez on the prelims of UFC 290 and gritted through a knockdown to win his first UFC bout via decision. Now, he'll look to get a victory over his first-ranked opponent and move into the rankings while going 15-0.
