There promises to be an exciting night of action in the UFC at the UFC Apex on Saturday night, as two heavyweights with exceptional records in the octagon go head-to-head. The UFC Fight Night card will be brought to a close by the bout between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Ciryl Gane, who both have exceptional records as professionals.
There is also engaging UFC action on the undercard, as Nikita Krylov and Magomed Ankalaev clash in the light heavyweight division, and Montana De La Rosa meets Mayra Bueno Silva in the women’s flyweight division.
UFC News: Gane Looking To Continue Perfect Record
All the eyes on Saturday night will be on Ciryl Gane though, as the Frenchman looks for an eighth straight victory in MMA. The Frenchman has quickly become one of the standout stars in the UFC since switching from kickboxing, which he also had a perfect 7-0 record in. He currently is ranked as the seventh best fighter in the heavyweight division, but a win this weekend would be huge for his title credentials.
All seven of Gane’s fights in UFC have come over the past three years. His debut came inside the octagon came at a UFC Fight Night in August 2019, as he beat Raphael Pessoa via submission in the first round. His two following wins in UFC came against Don’Tale Mayes and Tanner Boser, before he most recently beat Junior Dos Santos by TKO at UFC 256 in December 2020.
UFC News: Huge Challenge In The Form Of Rozenstruik
This will be a massive step up in competition for the Frenchman this weekend, as Jairzinho Rozenstruik will be the man standing in the opposite corner to him. Rozenstruik is revered as one of the best heavyweights in the UFC, and also holds the record for the second fastest knockout in the history of the heavyweight division in the UFC. He is ranked at fourth in the rankings, but will be the narrow underdog in the betting for this contest against Gane on Saturday evening.
Rozenstruik has lost just once during his professional career, with that defeat being suffered at the hands of Francis Ngannou last year. However, he returned to the octagon at UFC 252 in August last year with an emphatic performance against Junior Dos Santos, as he knocked out his opponent in the second round of their contest.
