Jair Rozenstruik

Bigi Boy


No-shows Charlotte main event
May 13, 2023
Rozenstruik lost to Jailton Almeida via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:43 of Round 1 at UFC on ABC 4 on Saturday in Charlotte.
This appeared to be an impossible spot for Rozenstruik on paper, and it played out exactly that way once the bell rang. Entering as a +360 underdog, largest on the entire card, Jair was non-competitive in defending an early takedown attempt, with the fight essentially being over the second he hit the mat. Rozenstruik's power is legitimate, but he has zero means of generating any secondary offense, and he's a below-average athlete for the heavyweight division. It's not a great combination. A loser of four of his last six dating back to February 2021, there's an overwhelming likelihood we have already seen the best Jair has to offer inside the Octagon.

Taking on Almeida May 13
February 20, 2023
Rozenstruik will take on Jailton Almeida at the UFC event on May 13, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
Rozenstruik is coming off one of his strongest showings of his career last December against Chris Daukaus. He will look to get back to .500 over the course of his last eight bouts with a win against Almeida.
Destroys Chris Daukaus
December 10, 2022
Rozenstruik defeated Chris Daukaus via KO (punch) at 0:23 of Round 1 at UFC 282 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Easy work. Rozenstruik lacks traditional athleticism and isn't going to win many (or any) fights if his power strikes aren't landing, but this performance is a perfect example of what can happen when they do connect. Jair blasted Daukaus with a couple big shots moments after the opening bell rang, and that was essentially all she wrote. Rozenstruik has no history of hanging with better competition and that almost certainly will not change considering he will be turning 35 years of age next March, but there's more than enough here for Jair to continue to blast fringe-roster fighters such as Daukaus. The effort would also go on to earn him a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus.
Now fighting in December

Rozenstruik will now take on Chris Daukaus at UFC 282 on Dec. 10, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Rozenstruik was initially slated to face Daukaus at UFC Vegas 61 on Oct. 1, but the fight was pushed back for an unspecified reason. Rozenstruik most recently lost a headliner heavyweight fight to Alexander Volkov via TKO (punches) at UFC Fight Night in early June.

Rozenstruik was last in the Octagon in June when he fell in the main event against Alexander Volkov. That pushed him to just 2-4 since May of 2020. Daukaus himself has been knocked out each of his last two fights.
Quickly stopped in Vegas main event
June 4, 2022
Rozenstruik lost to Alexander Volkov via TKO (punches) at 2:12 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's just the second knockout defeat of Rozenstruik's career and the first against someone other than current UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou. We have seen Jair take some beatings over the years, making the end result of this fight quite a surprise. Both men were throwing some haymakers in the early going, but Rozenstruik got clipped by a right hand and then a prolonged combination, and that was enough for referee Herb Dean to step in. It was a bit of an early stoppage, as Jair appeared to still be defending himself, but he was also clearly wobbled. Rozenstruik shocked most everyone by picking up four straight knockout wins to begin his run with the UFC, but he has predictably struggled when tasked with facing better competition. Jair is just 2-4 dating back to May 2020, and he will have zero chance of winning fights moving forward if his durability starts to become a consistent issue.
