UFC on ESPN 7 in Tweets: Pros react to Jairzinho Rozenstruik’s knockout of Alistair Overeem

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Entering Saturday night’s main event at UFC on ESPN 7, longtime MMA veteran Alistair Overeem looked to halt the undefeated Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

While fans expected violence from the two kickboxing specialists, Overeem uitlized a grappling-heavy gameplan as as he tossed Rozenstruik around the Octagon. But with less than 10-seconds left in the fight, Rozenstruik uncorked a hellacious right hook to the jaw of Overeem, sending him crumpling the canvas and splitting his lip in two.
