UFC Vegas 28: Rozenstruik vs. Sakai predictions

The UFC returns to the Apex Saturday for UFC Vegas 28, which features heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Augusto Sakai in the main event.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

 TOM BREESE (12-3-0) VS. ANTONIO ARROYO (9-4-0)

UFC Vegas 28

Andrews: Arroyo is a good fighter but he is giving up some height here. He needs a win but I think Breese will overcome some early fires and grind out a decision.

Andrews Prediction: Tom Breese via UD

DUSKO TODOROVIC (10-1-0) VS. GREGORY RODRIGUES (9-3-0)

UFC Vegas 28

Andrews:  Rodrigues is making his debut. Todorovic lost his first bout in his last fight so I think he comes back strong using his octagon experience.

Andrews Prediction: Dusko Todorovic via TKO

SANTIAGO PONZINIBBIO (27-4-0) VS. MIGUEL BAEZA (10-0-0) 

UFC Vegas 28

Andrews: Baeza is a prospect but he is facing a vet in Santiago. I love Baeza, but I have to go with the experience of Ponzinibbio.

Andrews Prediction: Santiago Ponzinibbio via TKO

ROMAN DOLIDZE (8-1-0) VS. LAUREANO STAROPOLI (9-3-0)

UFC Vegas 28

Andrews: Both guys need a win, but I think it’s Dolidze that returns to form on Saturday night.

Andrews Prediction: Roman Dolidze via TKO

#8 WALT HARRIS (13-9-0) VS. #11 MARCIN TYBURA (21-6-0)

Andrews: Harris has had some bad luck in his recent fights. He was close to winning them but here, he will need to finish the big shot otherwise Tybura will use his all around game to put him away.

Andrews Prediction: Marcin Tybura via submission

MAIN EVENT

#6 JAIRZINHO ROZENSTRUIK (11-2-0) VS. #9 AUGUSTO SAKAI (15-2-1)

Andrews: Sakai has a more all-around game with more cardio. I think he avoids the big shot and lands several of his own to finish “Bigi Boi.”

Andrews Prediction:
