The UFC gets back to the Apex facility in Las Vegas for another UFC Fight Night card Saturday, May 22 live on ESPN+.
The main event brings in two heavyweights looking to reverse their most recent result when No. 6 Jairzinho Rozenstruik faces on No. 9 Augusto Sakai. Rozenstruik is 11-2 career, but has dropped two of his last three to elite fighters in Francis Ngannou and Cyril Gane.
Sakai got signed out of Dana White’s Contender Series, and was 4-0 as a UFC competitor before falling to Alistair Overeem in September of 2020. He’s 15-2-1 overall as an MMA professional, but could use a win here to stay on an upward trajectory towards the top of the rankings at 265 lbs.
Also the co-main event is at heavyweight as well, where No. 8 Walt Harris will face No. 11 Marcin Tybura. Harris is 13-9 career, but fell in losses to Alexander Volkov and Overeem for his only bouts of 2020. Tybura is 21-6 career and walks to the octagon on a four-fight winning streak, including stopping Greg Hardy in the second round in December of last year during his previous outing.
