Middleweights will top the bill at UFC Fight Night: Cannonier vs. Gastelum on Saturday, as veteran contenders Jared Cannonier takes on Kelvin Gastelum in the main event. The main UFC fight card from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas is set for 10 p.m. ET.

Cannonier (13-5) likes to strike early and has registered nine of his 13 wins via knockout. The 37-year-old began his MMA career in 2011 and went four years before suffering his first loss, a knockout to Shawn Jordan at UFC 182. He has gone 6-4 since and is third in the UFC middleweight rankings.

Gastelum has had a long and successful career, compiling a 16-7-1 record since his first fight in December of 2010. Like Cannonier, he started his career with a lot of success, winning his first 10 bouts. In April 2013, he defeated Uriah Hall by split decision to win the Ultimate Fighter 17 middleweight tournament. He has also fought at welterweight and catchweight.

Cannonier is a -155 favorite (risk $155 to win $100), while Gastelum is offered at +130 (risk $100 to win $130) in the latest UFC Fight Night: Cannonier vs. Gastelum odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
