After losing two of his latest three fights, the hard-punching Jairzinho Rozenstruik is seeking to return his place among the championship contenders. At the end of February, Cyril Gane beat the 33-year-old Surinamese fighter through unanimous decision.

There will be another critical challenge in the clash against Sakai, who has lost just once in his last four UFC fights. Augusto Sakai is competing in his second UFC big event in a row. In September, the 30-year-old Brazilian was stopped in the fifth round by former heavyweight championship contender Alistair Overeem, ending his four-fight winning run.

Both of these heavyweights are coming off defeats, and the winner will find himself right back in the hunt for the heavyweight title.
