UFC Vegas 87: Fight card and where to watch as unbeaten Shamil Gaziev battles Jairzinho Rozenstruik

The heavyweights are coming to Las Vegas as Jairzinho Rozenstruik prepares to take on the undefeated Shamil Gaziev at UFC Fight Night this Saturday night.

Rozenstruik is a UFC veteran who has more main events under his belt than all current champions except for Jon Jones.

The 35-year-old has shared the octagon with some of the biggest names in the business, including Alistair Overeem, Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane.

Unfortunately for the Suriname native, most of his high-profile bouts ended with defeats.

Rozenstruik has won just three of his last eight bouts, with his last outing ending in a first-round submission defeat to Jailton Almeida.

This weekend, things don’t get any easier for Bigi Boy as he takes on the undefeated Gaziev.

The Bahrain native made his UFC bow on the Contender Series, defeating Greg Velasco in the first round back in September.

Gaziev returned to action in December and finished Martin Buday in the second round to extend his professional record to 12-0.

Earlier on the card, Vitor Petrino will square off against Tyson Pedro in a light-heavyweight clash.

England’s Muhammad Mokaev also features as he takes on Alex Perez.

The main card begins at 9pm GMT and 4pm ET. Meanwhile, the main event is scheduled for 12am GMT and 7pm ET.

Fans in the United States can watch the action unfold on ESPN+ while over in the UK, TNT Sports will broadcast the event. Below is the full card.
