Everything you need to know about the epic Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane clash and other fights at Vegas 20

UFC Fight Night 186 also known as Vegas 20 is setting up to be yet another smashing MMA event. With this event, the UFC would’ve had 3 heavyweight main events in their last 4.
The start of 2021 surely seems like the UFC are looking to activate that super-charged, heavily excited Heavyweight division.
Speaking of UFC Fight Night 186 a.k.a Vegas 20, it will take place yet again at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas Nevada and we have a banger of a main event in Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane.
The Surinamese kickboxer Rozenstruik is coming off a cracker of a performance against the former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos. With a decorated record of 11-1, Rozenstruik’s only MMA loss has been versus the title challenger Francis Ngannou. Rozenstruik’s head coach Michael Babb has clearly stated that Bigi Boy is going to compete for the belt in the coming year.
However, he is facing devastator in the Frenchman Ciryl Gane who is unbeaten in his MMA career with a record of 7-0. Both Gane and Rozenstruik have their last wins against Junior Dos Santos although Gane has the edge as he trains with Francis Ngannou, the only man to have beaten Rozenstruik in MMA.
Gane’s coach Fernand Lopez has been extremely vocal about the fact that he is going to finish Rozenstruik in their next clash.
Crystal Ball Predictions: Rozenstruik wins by TKO.
In the co-main event of the evening – Nikita Krylov faces Magomed Ankalaev.
It may seem like a surprise match up to many. Ankalaev is on a 5 fight win streak including the immensely hyped grudge match against Ion Cutelaba (who he beat twice) and is extremely aggressive and dangerous.
Nikita is a top prospect in the light heavyweight division and has his share of highs and lows. If Nikita manages to pull off the victory in this one, it’s going to skyrocket him in the division.
Crystal Ball Prediction: Ankalaev wins by Unanimous Decision
Another fight I would like to put on the table for our viewers is the opener of the main card – Alex Caceres vs Kevin Croom.
Croom a 33 year old veteran was a last minute replacement in his UFC debut versus a very tough and betting favorite Roosevelt Roberts.
As his nickname suggests – The Hard Hitting Hillbilly Kevin Croom rocked Roberts and knocked him out in 31 seconds of the very first round. Infact, UFC president Dana White announced Croom as the Fight of the Night even before the event ended.
The fight unfortunately was declared a No-Contest when the NSAC announced that Croom had failed his post fight drug test (intake of marijuana).
It’s one fight I surely would like to keep my eyes on. Here are all the fights from UFC Fight Night 186 / Vegas 20 Heavyweight
