The UFC returns home to Las Vegas, NV after being on the road for two weeks.

The UFC Vegas 87 fight card is headlined by heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Shamil Gaziev. Rozenstruik is looking to get back in the win column after a disappointing first-round submission loss in May 2023. Gaziev is on an impressive unbeaten streak including a win in his UFC debut in December 2023. He looks for the biggest win of his career over the No. 12-ranked Rozenstruik.

The co-main event is a light heavyweight bout between Vitor Petrino and Tyson Pedro. The winner could propel themselves closer to a top 15 ranking with a highlight reel performance.

At press time it's thought that Raul Rosas Jr. and Ricky Turcious will also appear on the card after their UFC Mexico fight was canceled. But it's unclear how official that is or where on the card they will appear.
