Curtis Blaydes, who made his UFC debut in 2016, has quickly amassed a 7-2 record in the heavyweight division. Both of his losses have come against knockout artist Francis Ngannou, but Blaydes will get another chance to show he can handle a power striker as he takes on former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos in the main event of Saturday's UFC Fight Night show in Raleigh, North Carolina.
