Main Card

Alistair Overeem

Alistair Overeem is a UFC veteran and is known as the “Demolition Man” with over 62 professional fights under his name. This heavyweight fighter hails from the Netherlands and fights out of Elevation Fight Team. He is coming off a first-round victory against Alexey Oleynik whom he KO’s in the first round back on April 20 of this year at UFC Fight Night 149. Before that match, Overeem also KO’d Sergei Pavlovich in the first round in November 2018. It was a career reviving run as fans thought that the 39-year-old Overeem should have retired already after suffering two consecutive losses from 2017-2018. This veteran fighter loves to finish his fights early with his brute strength. 51% of his wins came from TKOs and he is also deadly on the mat and won 38% by submissions.

Over the career of Overeem, he faced fighters and won over previous champions such as Junior dos Santos and Fabricio Werdum. He will prove to be a huge challenge for the undefeated Rozenstruik and a barometer for the young fighter how he will fair in his UFC career.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Rozenstruik is known as “Bigi Boy” and he is currently undefeated in nine professional bouts. He is a heavyweight fighter that hails from Suriname and fights out of Team Bigi Boy. The 31-year-old fighter took the UFC by storm in 2019. All his bouts since his debut were all KO’s and the longest was 54 seconds in the second round. He has disposed of Junior Albini, Allen Crowder and veteran fighter Andrei Arlovski in a 29 second KO in the first round. Against Overeem, he will have a lot of fight tapes to study his opponent and if he manages to elude Overeem’s strength, the fight should go on the floor in which Rozenstruik should avoid.

This is Rozenstruik’s fourth fight in 2019 and he will look out to close the year strong by beating Overeem and rise up to the UFC Heavyweight rankings. A win against Overeem will help him validate his status as one of the fighters to watch in the next decade.
