A double-shot of heavyweight action sat atop Saturday’s UFC Vegas 28 card.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, once flirting with the top of the weight class, was looking right the ship after going 1-2 across his last three fights. A loss to Ciryl Gane last time out had halted “Bigi Boi’s” momentum, but a big showing against Augusto Sakai could get it going again.
Sakai, a Bellator MMA veteran, had a six-fight win streak snapped when he lost to Alistair Overeem last September.
The co-main event found Walt Harris also looking to rebuild after a heartbreaking pair of losses to Overeem and Alexander Volkov. He was paired up with surging Polish fighter Marcin Tybura.
Weigh-ins for the event go down Friday, with the card taking place Saturday, June 5. Weigh-in results can be found below.
