Heavyweight Main Event – Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane

This weekend, heavyweight standouts are looking to claim their place in the queue of contenders for the heavyweight title, as Jairzinho Rozenstruik squares off with Ciryl Gane in this compelling main event.

Following an incredible rookie campaign in 2019 that saw him earn four straight stoppage victories, the kickboxer from Suriname suffered the first loss of his MMA career in his first 2020 appearance at the hands of Francis Ngannou. Rozenstruik then bounced back with a second-round stoppage win over Junior Dos Santos in August to solidify his place amongst the division’s elite. He looks to put himself on the shortlist of potential title challengers by squaring off against Ciryl Gane at UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs Gane.

Speaking to UFC ahead of the main event, Rozenstruik said, “I’ll always want to fight. I want to be busy. So it doesn’t matter who it is. And this guy is right now a lot of hype and he’s the type of fighter who can move he does a lot of things. We all trained so we’re going to put them on go there and put down our best performance and especially for me a win is really important. So it’s exciting. It’s an exciting, interesting fight”

Ciryl Gane is unbeaten in the seven starts of his mixed martial arts career. He enters this fight on the back of the second-round stoppage win over former champion Dos Santos at UFC 256, The Frenchman has shown a diverse skill set in his limited time competing inside the Octagon, earning his first two UFC wins by submission, including a third-round heel hook finish of Don’Tale Mayes.

Speaking to UFC, Ciryl Gane said, “I’m really happy because we did well, we finished the fight and he’s a former champion, so I’m really, really happy to deliver this performance. I think I’m a young fighter that has just arrived, but a good fighter, with a good future in the division I just want to prove myself inside the cage and after you prove yourself, then you can talk.”

Two years ago, Rozenstruik was an unknown fighter who burst onto the scene, and before arriving to the UFC, Gane was a hyped prospect who had earned three TKO finishes. Now, just a couple of years later, they’re running on parallel tracks towards the top of the division, and this weekend, we’ll find out which one will move one step closer to challenging for the UFC heavyweight title.
