ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported the news. The UFC Fight Night on March 28 will take place in Columbus, US.
The 33-year-old Ngannou is currently ranked #2 in the heavyweight division. “The Predator” is on a three-fight winning streak with his last loss dating back in July 2018.
The 31-year-old Rozenstruik is coming off of a late KO victory against Alistair Overeem this past weekend. “Bigi Boi” had a gigantic 2019, making his UFC debut and defeating all 4 of his opponents. After his Performance of the Night against Overeem, Rozenstruik challenged Ngannou and it seems the answer was positive.
