Jairzinho Rozenstruik takes on Augusto Sakai in the UFC Fight Night heavyweight main event on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Fights at UFC Apex will be on ESPN +, with the main card starting at 7 p.m. ET and prelims at 4 p.m.
Rozenstruik (11-2) has lost two of his last three fights after winning the top 10 of his professional career. However, the losses came against Francis Ngannou, who now holds the UFC heavyweight championship belt, and undefeated Ciryl Gane. Rozenstruik, 33, the only fighter from Suriname on the UFC roster, is No.7 in the ESPN heavyweight rankings.
Sakai (15-2-1) just lost to Alistair Overeem last September, but before that, the 30-year-old Brazilian had won six straight wins.
The main co-event is also in heavyweights. Marcin Tybura (21-6) puts his streak of four consecutive victories on the line against Walt Harris (13-9, 1 NC), who has lost his last two.
