13-4

Record

A professional kickboxer with a record of 76-8-1 before joining the UFC heavyweight roster, Jairzinho Rozenstruik has had mixed success since suffering his first career loss at the hands of Francis Ngannou back in 2020. 

Since then, Rozenstruik has gone 3-3. He recently snapped a two-fight skid with his UFC 282 first-round knockout win over Chris Daukaus last December. The win earned him a performance of the night bonus.

This Saturday, Rozenstruik will take on the quickly-rising heavyweight contender and BJJ black belt Jailton Almeida. 

Almeida moved up to the heavyweight division following his UFC debut (which was fought at light heavyweight) and has since won three in a row at the new weight. After submitting both Parker Porter and Anton Turkalj, Almeida most recently earned a second-round TKO over Shamil Abdurakhimov at UFC 283 this past January.

The younger Almeida will enjoy a one-inch advantage in both height and weight and is listed as the biggest betting favorite on the main card at -500.

Height

36-17

Record

20-7

Former UFC light heavyweight title contender and Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt returns to action for the first time since losing to Magomed Ankalaev via TKO last July at UFC 277.

Prior to that loss, Smith had racked up three straight victories over the likes of Ryan Spann, Jimmy Crute, and Devin Clark.

Smith takes on Johnny Walker - a fan favorite who struggled to string wins together in the last few years but who seems to have gotten himself back on track.

Walker has won his last two fights in a row. He submitted Ion Cutelaba in the first round of their UFC 279 bout and followed that up with his most recent performance: a first-round TKO win over Paul Craig at UFC 283 this past January.

Only one-inch separates these men in height but Walker will enjoy a significant six-inch reach advantage over Smith. However, in the eyes of the oddsmakers, this is a complete pick ‘em as both men are listed at -110.

Daniel Rodriguez vs Ian Garry - Welterweight Division

Undefeated Irish sensation Ian Garry is looking for his fifth-straight win in the UFC octagon this Saturday where he will take on the always-dangerous Daniel Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was riding a four-fight winning streak heading into his last fight against Neil Magny. Unfortunately, Magny was able to submit Rodriguez in the third round of their Fight Night bout last November.

Ian Garry has already fought once in 2023. He took on Song Kenan this past March at UFC 285 and earned a third-round TKO over his opponent. 

Despite Garry’s height advantage, both men will be equal in the reach department. But the Irishman is heavily favored at -300.

Carlos Ulberg vs Ihor Potieria - Light Heavyweight Division

Ihor Potieria was riding a 13-fight winning streak - including a win on the Contender Series - into his 2022 UFC debut. However, he came up short, losing via TKO in the second round at the hands of Nicolae Negumereanu.

Potieria bounced back in his most recent bout, however; defeating Mauricio Rua via first-round TKO this past January in what was Rua’s retirement match.

Carlos Ulberg, a training partner of champions Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski, has won his last three in a row - most recently defeating Nicolae Negumereanu by first-round knockout last November at UFC 281.

Ulberg, a staggering -410 favorite to win, will stand one inch taller and have a reach advantage of two inches.

Alex Morono vs Tim Means - Welterweight Division

22-8, 1 no-contest

Record

32-14-1, 1 no-contest

Boasting a black belt in taekwondo and a second-degree black belt in BJJ, Alex Morono recently had his four-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Santiago Ponzinibbio last December. 

He lost the bout via third-round knockout at UFC 282.

Morono takes on veteran Tim Means, who has lost his last two fights against Kevin Holland (submission) and Max Griffin (split decision).

Means is three inches taller than Morono and will have a two-inch reach advantage. However, Morono, a -215 favorite, will have the youth advantage as he is seven years younger than his opponent.
