For Brazilian upstart, Sakai, he also enters the clash hoping to rebound from a defeat — the first in his promotional run, in fact, following another headlining knockout loss to promotional alum, veteran kickboxing talent, Alistair Overeem at UFC Vegas 9 last September.

In notable promotional wins for 33-year-old kickboxer, Rozenstruik, he’s managed successes against the likes of common-foe, Overeem, as well as former division champions, Andrei Arlovski and Junior dos Santos.

Dana White‘s Contender Series product, Sakai has managed to also score a win over common-opposition, Arlovski, as well as Chase Sherman, Marcin Tybura, and Blagoy Ivanov.
