Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem (46-18) is the sixth ranked Heavyweight fighter, and he’s still performing at a super high level after a twenty year career. His recent losses include the current champion, Stipe Miocic, and the top two contenders, but he’s beaten many other top contenders. 

He nearly had an impressive victory over Jairzinho Rozenstruik. but Overeem got knocked out with four seconds remaining. Now he hopes to impress against another top ten fighter and get in the mix for a title fight next year.

Augusto Sakai (15-1-1) is the ninth ranked UFC Heavyweight fighter, and he’s been fast rising up the rankings over the last two years. Sakai is undefeated in the UFC, but Overeem will be his biggest test in the promotion.

Before joining the UFC, Sakai fought in Bellator for over four years, and he built a great reputation there with only one career loss in a split decision to Cheick Kongo. A win here could mean big things for Sakai in 2021 and beyond.
