Jairzinho Rozenstruik (+210) vs. Ciryl Gane (-265)

In a powerhouse matchup between two heavyweight fighters, we get Jairzinho Rozenstruik taking on Ciryl Gane in the main event. The winner of this match will likely ascend up the heavyweight rankings and could set themselves up nicely for a title fight in the near future.

“Bigi Boy” Rozenstruik enters the APEX with a professional fighting record of 11-1 but is the underdog (+210) against Gane. However he is receiving 69% of the handle and 47% of bets. The 32-year-old last fought in August at UFC 252, where he defeated Junior dos Santos by TKO in Round 2. It was his 10th victory by TKO/KO, which was a great bounce back win after Rozenstruik suffered his first career loss at UFC 249 to Francis Ngannou by knockout.

As for Gane, he walks into the octagon as the favorite (-265), but only is receiving 31% of the handle and 53% of the bets. The 30-year-old fighter has a professional fighting record of 7-0.

“Bon Gamin” Gane has not been fighting for not long as his pro career began in 2018 at TKO MMA. In his last fight at UFC 256, Gane defeated Junior dos Santos by technical knockout in Round 2. Out of his sevens career wins, the French mixed martial artist has won three fights by TKO/KO and three bouts by submission.

Nikita Krylov (+255) vs. Magomed Ankalev (-335)

In the co-main event, Dagestan’s Magomed Ankalev looks to extend his UFC win streak to six at light heavyweight. The 14-1 fighter has stopped four opponents during that run, and brings lethal punching power to the octagon.

But he hasn’t faced many fighters with the experience of Krylov, who is 27-7 career, including 2-2 in the UFC having last competed almost one year ago in a decision win over Johnny Walker (Fact Check: Name is accurate). But prior to that, the Ukranian has 26 stoppages in 26 career wins, including 15 by submission. If he can get the fight to the mat, he’ll have a chance to score an upset.

Here’s a look at the remaining splits for other nine fights for UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs. Gane.
