A ranked Heavyweight clash has just been booked, as Tai Tuivasa will meet Augusto Sakai on November 20th at a currently untitled UFC event.
Tai Tuivasa (13-3) is now riding a three-fight win streak, with each of those coming via first round knockout. His most recent performance opposite Greg Hardy saw him flatten the former NFL star with one hook. He Wass booked to fight Walt Harris at UFC 267, but Harris has been forced out of the contest.
Number nine ranked Augusto Sakai (15-3-1) snatched up four straight UFC wins before running into Alistair Overeem, who finished him in the fifth round of their contest. Sakai now finds himself on a two-fight skid, losing by first round knockout in his last outing against Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
These two will duke it out on the November 20th Fight Night card, likely as the co-main event.
