The 30 year-old Espinosa saw his five-fight winning streak broken by Matt Schnell in his last fight back in August, where he lost by submission.
The 27 year-old Perez had an eight-fight winning streak until he was beaten on a TKO by Joseph Benavidez in the first round. There was no disgrace in that, as Benavidez is one of the very best flyweights in the game.
To his credit, Perez bounced straight back in his last fight with another decision over Mark De La Rosa.
Both these American fighters have proven submission skills, with Espinosa having claimed seven victories by submission and Perz having won six of his fights by submission.
