With both men in desperate need of a victory after previous losses, the two behemoths made the walk for their five-round fight inside the UFC APEX. But in the end, it was Rozenstruik who emerged victorious with another skull-rattling, first-round knockout.
Below is how fellow UFC fighters reacted to the entire night of main card action in Las Vegas.
