Rozenstruik vs. Gane Preview
- MMA Record: 11-1-0
Rozenstruik currently holds No. 3 in the UFC heavyweight rankings and continues to strengthen his name in the sport. He was able to get his name up the board through multiple knockouts last year, which came with a UFC 2019 Rookie of the Year award.
However, he was sidetracked by a knockout loss to Francis Ngannou at UFC 249 and is looking to bounce back in this upcoming match-up. He was able to recover when he ended his match against Junior Dos Santos with a second-round TKO.
The 32-year old has a tough mountain to climb as he is set to face Gane. He can use this match as a stepping stone to redeem himself after his first professional defeat in 2020. This puts him in the underdog end of the UFC betting odds.
- MMA Record: 7-0-0
Even if Gane does not have the numbers to back him up, he still ranks an impressive No. 7 in the UFC heavyweight rankings. He started his professional MMA fighting career with a bang, winning seven straight matches.
The experienced Muay Thai fighter can showcase his skills against the experienced kickboxer, producing an interesting fight that will soon unfold before us. There’s still plenty of time for him to make a mark in the sport and we can see his potential through wins against Pessoa and Mayes in 2019.
Facing Rozenstruik is going to be tough for the 30-year old, but If he pulls off a win here, it gets him a step closer to becoming a future UFC champion. Being the favorite in the match-up, the UFC betting lines present Gane as the safe pick.
