Who’s next for Jairzinho Rozenstruik?
Sitting at No.8 in the UFC’s heavyweight rankings, Rozenstruik has an array of fun matchups on either side of him. However, the Surinamese heavy-hitter is eyeing up some of the biggest names in the division.
Speaking post-fight, Rozenstruik said he knew Daukaus didn’t have what It took to stop him, sending a reminder to the rest of the division.
“I know he [Daukaus] can’t handle the pressure.” He said. “I know another thing about myself, When I go forward, I knock people out. As soon as I got the opening, he threw that right, I jabbed him and kind of rocked him, and I just followed up.”
“I put in work, so that’s what you’re going to see. I just do what I have to do, and that’s it.”
“I’ll say to the top five: Don’t get too comfortable. I put a lot of work into what I do. After a few fights [not winning], I’m back in the win column and I’m looking forward to [winning more].” (H/T BJPenn.com)
Rozenstruik’s performance saw him get back on the winning track following dropping fights to Alexander Volkov and Curtis Blaydes.
Although he has been a little up and down since dropping his first loss to Francis Ngannou, Rozenstruik has proved dangerous and a handle for just about anyone.
