Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker faces Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday at the promotion's Apex facility in Las Vegas.

The fights will be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+, with the main card starting at 10 p.m. ET and the prelims at 7 p.m.

Whittaker (22-5) has won 11 of his past 12 fights, the lone loss coming on the night in 2019 when Israel Adesanya took away his title by knockout. In his most recent fight, in October, Whittaker defeated Jared Cannonier by unanimous decision. Whittaker is No. 2 in the ESPN middleweight rankings.

Gastelum (16-6, 1 NC) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Ian Heinisch in February, which ended a three-fight losing streak. That skid began with a 2019 loss to Adesanya in an interim title fight.

Also on the card is a heavyweight fight between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski and Chase Sherman, winner of four in a row.

There's also another intriguing heavyweight bout on the undercard, featuring Alexander Romanov, a Moldovan who is 13-0 with finishes in every fight -- 10 of which have come in the first round. He faces Spaniard Juan Espino, who has won eight in a row, with six of those wins coming by first-round finish.
