Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has assembled a titanic tilt between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Cyril Gane for the upcoming UFC Vegas 20 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Feb. 27, scheduled for APEX center in Las Vegas, streaming exclusively on ESPN+.
Now they have an official poster.
Rozenstruik (11-1) jumped out to 10 straight wins in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, culminating in consecutive knockout wins over longtime veterans Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem. Unfortunately, his march to the 265-pound title would be halted by the fists of top contender Francis Ngannou, but “Bigi Boy” got right back into the win column with a second-round finish against ex-heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
As for Gane (7-0), he’s also coming off a second-round stoppage over “Cigano” after winning his first three fights under the UFC banner. “Bon Gamin” is currently undefeated in his combat sports career with finishes over Raphael Pessoa and Don’Tale Mayes, just to name a few. No question a victory over Rozenstruik puts Gane one or two wins away from a heavyweight title shot, depending on how this scenario plays out.
