The heavyweight division has another rising contender.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik delivered another impressive performance in his third UFC outing, needing just 29 seconds to blast Andrei Arlovski and record a first-round knockout on the preliminary portion of UFC 244 on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The Surinamese fighter walked Arlovski down from the opening bell, threatening with his impressive power before landing a counter-left right on the chin that put the former UFC heavyweight champion down for the count.
Arlovski, making his 31st UFC appearance (the most in company history for a heavyweight), falls to 7-9 (1 no-contest) in his second stint with the promotion. The 40-year-old was finished for the first time in his 10 most recent performances.
