Shut out in main event

February 27, 2021
Rozenstruik lost to Ciryl Gane via unanimous decision (45-50, 45-50, 45-50) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's difficult to remember a fighter in recent memory who fought for 25 minutes and accomplished less than Rozenstruik here. Gane wasn't exactly a picture of activity in his own right, but Jair spent nearly the entire bout in search of an opening that never once came close to materializing. Rozenstruik's one-punch knockout ability is well established, as is his extremely limited offensive arsenal. Simply put, he's not going to win many (or any) fights if those power shots aren't connecting. Rozenstruik's recipe for victory is essentially identical to that of Derrick Lewis, except Lewis has more power and is bigger, and thus can close the gap between he and his opposition much easier. Jair exploded on the scene with five wins in his first six UFC bouts, but there's a better than even chance we have already seen the best he has to offer.

Rozenstruik will take on Ciryl Gane in a heavyweight bout at a UFC event scheduled for March 13, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Rozenstruik hasn't fought since August, when he defeated Junior dos Santos via TKO (punches) at UFC 252. He now carries a 5-1 record with the promotion and will take on Gane in March. Gane also defeated dos Santos in his most recently fight, defeating him via TKO (elbow) at UFC 256 on Dec. 12. Gane has advantages in both height and reach.
Huge KO of Junior Dos Santos
HeavyweightUFC
August 15, 2020
Rozenstruik defeated Junior Dos Santos via TKO (punches) at 3:47 of Round 2 at UFC 252 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It wasn't a perfect performance from Jair. In fact, he was probably losing prior to the stoppage. Yet, when all was said and done, he earned a key victory on the heels of his 20-second knockout loss to Francis Ngannou in May. Jair appeared to enter this fight in better shape. He is never going to be a high-volume striker, but his gas tank held up on Saturday. After having extremely limited space to work with throughout the course of the fight, Rozenstruik got JDS along the fence and connected with a quick jab and massive hook to turn Dos Santos' lights out. Jair isn't on the level of Ngannou, Stipe Miocic or Daniel Cormier, but he's a clear top-10 heavyweight at this point. That's quite an accomplishment for a guy who has been with the UFC for less than two years and is sporting a 5-1 record with the company.
Looking to bounce back at UFC 252
HeavyweightUFC
June 12, 2020
Rozenstruik will take on Junior dos Santos at UFC 252 on Aug. 15, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Rozenstruik is coming off a disappointing showing in an opportunity to prove himself versus Francis Ngannou, lasting just 20 seconds into the bout to deliver Rozenstruik his first professional loss. Next up for him is a chance to bounce back versus a veteran in Dos Santos, who is also looking to get back on track following a pair of losses. The stand at 6-foot-4, while Rozenstruik holds a one-inch advantage in the reach department.
