UFC Fight Night on ESPN+: Lewis vs Oleinik - August 8

The main card event features a heavyweight throw down between former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem and Suriname’s Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Rozenstruik will be making a quick turnaround after his UFC 244 win over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski on November 2, however he’s already 3-0 with three knockouts to start his UFC career and shows no signs of slowing down. Overeem is coming into the fight with two straight wins and heaps of experience looking to stop Rozenstruik’s roll.

The co-main event features a strawweight matchup between top-10 contenders as unbeaten Marina Rodriguez (12-0-1) takes on Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-0).
