Rogerio de Lima is in line to face the debuting Alexander Romanov in a heavyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Sept. 5, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Rogerio de Lima's UFC run has been a mixed bag, as he's alternated wins and losses in each of his last nine fights, competing at both heavyweight and light heavyweight. He'll take on an undefeated 29-year-old in Romanov, who also happens to sport a 100 percent finishing weight in professional fights. Rogerio de Lima rarely lets things go to the judges as well, so this will end up being a matchup to target in daily formats.
Comes out on top in wild brawl
HeavyweightUFC
February 22, 2020
Rogerio de Lima defeated Ben Sosoli via TKO (punches) at 1:28 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 168 in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Both Rogerio de Lima and his opponent traded wild haymakers from the get-go, but it was the Brazillian whose shots were far more accurate, which led to a disappointing end for Sosoli inside of the first two minutes. As a former light heavyweight, Rogerio de Lima has fast hands for this division and some nice BJJ to match. The problem is that we have seen him give up when fights aren't going his way before, particularly when he gets stuck on the bottom. It will also be interesting to see if his fight frequency increases, as this was his first bout since February of 2019. He improves to 17-6-1 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Folds under opponent's top game
HeavyweightUFC
February 23, 2019
Rogerio de Lima lost to Stefan Struve via submission (arm-triangle choke) at 1:34 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 145 in Prague, Czech Republic on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Rogerio de Lima looked sharp in his first fight at heavyweight in November, and appeared to be headed towards another victory after dropping Struve with a big shot in the first round. Fortunes changed in Round 2, however, as Struve found a takedown in a grappling exchange and wasted little time cutting through Rogerio de Lima's guard to sink the choke. The 33-year-old's game is almost certainly better suited for the heavyweight division but he still has the problem of looking particularly lost when on bottom, as four of his six losses have come via submission. While it would be premature to write him off due to one loss, Rogerio de Lima needs to sharpen up his guard game if he wants to progress past mid-tier rankings.
