’BIGI BOY’ BRAWL! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to its APEX venue in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., March 2, 2024, with a Heavyweight showdown between knockout artist and former kickboxing standout, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, welcoming undefeated Contender Series signee, Shamil Gaziev (11-0), to the Octagon proper. In UFC Vegas 87’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, undefeated Vitor Petrino (10-0) looks to keep his perfect record intact at the expense of the once highly-touted Tyson Pedro in a Light Heavyweight scrap.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Gastelum (16-7, 1 NC) was one victory away from capturing the interim middleweight strap against Israel Adesanya at UFC 236 back in early 2019. Instead, the former welterweight came up short by way of split decision — part of a dreadful 1-4 streak that includes losses to Darren Till and Robert Whittaker.

As for Cannonier (13-5), he’s also looking to rebound from a decision loss to Whittaker, one that snapped a three-fight win streak dating back to May 2019. “The Killa Gorilla” — a former heavyweight — is one of the hardest punchers at 185 pounds and will look to keep his spot in the Top 5 by vanquishing Gastelum.

Below is the co-main event staredown between Clay Guida and Mark Madsen:
