The UFC has changed Jairzinho Rozenstriuk vs Ciryl Gane to a five round fight that will take place at a Vegas event on February 27th, that’s according to “Bigi Boi.”

Top heavyweights contenders Rozenstriuk and Gane were originally supposed to meet in a three round fight at a UFC event on March 13th.

MMA Junkie later confirmed the news.

Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochazka are scheduled to meet in a light heavyweight fight in the UFC Vegas 20 headliner. It is unknown as to what caused that fight to fall through as the main event, and whether or not it will be rescheduled.

There is speculation that with the UFC 258 co-main event between Chris Weidman and Uriah Hall being scratched, the promotion will move Reyes vs. Prochazka to fill that vacant spot.

Both Rozenstruik (11-1) and the undefeated Gane (7-0) are coming off stoppage wins over former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos. It’ll be Gane’s first UFC main event and Rozenstruik’s second, with his previous one ending in a KO win over Alistair Overeem.
