Rising heavyweight contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik kept his knockout streak alive last night (Sat., Dec. 7, 2019) at UFC on ESPN 7 live on ESPN from inside Capital One Arena in Washington D.C., as “Big Boy” put a brutal stop to former title challenger Alistair Overeem via fifth-round knockout (see it again HERE).
Before Overeem felt the last-second power of “Bigi Boy,” heavyweight veteran Ben Rothwell overcame a point deduction from groin kicks to take out Stefan Struve with a vicious TKO, women’s bantamweight contender Aspen Ladd returned to the UFC win column with a TKO victory over Yana Kunitskaya, welterweight finisher Tim Means captured a first-round submission stoppage over former title challenger Thiago Alves, bantamweight contenders Rob Font and Ricky Simon fought tooth-and-nail in a main card battle that Font won via decision, Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s fighter, Makhmud Muradov, recorded a walk-off knockout to spark the early “Prelims,” and rising featherweight prospect Bryce Mitchell scored a rare twister submission in his matchup with Matt Sayles.
