Both fighters are coming off of respective losses and will look to bounce back and make a move in a division that is wide open outside of the top five.
Coming into the event, Rozenstruik has won 5 of his 7 octagon appearances by way of stoppage, going 5-2 for +4.43 units profit on the ‘Inside the Distance’ prop. Meanwhile, Augusto Sakai is 4-1 in the octagon since his 2018 UFC debut, turning a marginal profit of +1.93 units on the moneyline in that stretch. Sakai has split his wins between stoppages and decisions, with two apiece, and his only stoppage loss coming in his last appearance against the now-defunct UFC heavyweight, Alistair Overeem.
