The Octagon remains in Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 28 event, a fourteen-bout fight card headliner by Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Augusto Sakai.
Rozenstruik (11-2 MMA) will enter tonight’s headliner looking to rebound from his recent unanimous decision loss to Ciryl Gane. Prior to that setback, ‘Bigi Boy’ was coming off a second round TKO victory over former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos.
Meanwhile, Augusto Sakai (15-2-1 MMA) will be returning to action for the fist time since September of 2020, where he suffered a TKO loss to Alistair Overeem. That setback snapped a six-fight winning streak for the Brazilian, which included four wins under the UFC banner.
UFC Vegas 28 is co-headlined by another exciting heavyweight tilt as Walt Harris will be squaring off with Marcin Tybura.
Harris (13-9 MMA) will be looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he takes to the Octagon this evening. ‘The Big Ticket’ is coming off back-to-back TKO losses to Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov in his most recent efforts.
Meanwhile, Marcin Tybura (21-6 MMA) will enter tonight’s UFC Vegas 28 co-main event sporting a four-fight winning streak. In his most recent appearance this past December, the Polish standout scored a second round TKO victory over Greg Hardy.
Also featured on tonight’s fight card is the return of former welterweight contender Santiago Ponzinibio who is set to square off with Miguel Baeza.
