A big swing for the UFC kicked into gear last weekend with UFC on ESPN 7. And speaking of swings, Jairzinho Rozenstruik sure did swing and connect in the main event at UFC DC.
The Suriname native capped a tremendous 2019 campaign with his knockout of Alistair Overeem with just four seconds remaining in their main-event fight. That result capped off a breathtaking UFC rookie year for the heavyweight in which he won all four of his fights, three of them via finish.
So where does that place him in the division with the heaviest hitters? The undefeated kickboxer lands No. 10 at heavyweight for now. But we’re pretty sure that if his 2020 is anything like his 2019, this time next year he’s going to be a whole lot higher in the rankings.
There were other consequential bouts at UFC on ESPN 7, with repercussions for competitors like Aspen Ladd, Cody Stamann, and Song Yadong. To see where they place in this week’s rankings — or where your favorite or least-favorite fighter lands — check out the rankings above.
