UFC will return with UFC Vegas 87 this weekend.

In the heavyweight division's latest showdown, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, a seasoned Top 15 contender, is set to face off against rising star Shamil Gaziev, who's vying for a spot in the rankings.

Rozenstruik, nicknamed "Bigi Boy," brings a wealth of experience to the Octagon, entering his sixth year on the UFC roster. Despite a recent rough patch, having lost three of his last four fights, Rozenstruik remains a formidable opponent, having previously secured four consecutive victories. Gaziev, on the other hand, is making waves in his UFC journey, boasting an undefeated record of 12-0. The fighter from the Kingdom of Bahrain has earned a reputation for his explosive finishes, with 11 of his wins coming by way of stoppage, eight of which occurred in the first round.

This matchup presents an intriguing test for Gaziev, offering him a chance to prove himself against a seasoned competitor like Rozenstruik. For the latter, it's an opportunity to reaffirm his position in the divisional hierarchy. With both fighters known for their finishing abilities, fans can anticipate an action-packed bout.

In the co-main event, Vitor Petrino, a Dana White's Contender Series graduate, squares off against Tyson Pedro, a seasoned Australian veteran. Petrino, fresh off a trio of victories in his debut year, faces a significant step up in competition against Pedro, who has amassed a 3-1 record since returning to the UFC. With both fighters aiming for dominance, fans can expect a thrilling matchup filled with excitement and potential finishes.
