Highlights: Junior Dos Santos vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik
(1:01)

The first round and a half of the UFC 252 heavyweight clash between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Junior dos Santos belonged to dos Santos, but Rozenstruik proved once again that it only takes one of his shots to turn a fight, scoring a TKO in the second round to rebound from a devastating loss in his last outing.

After suffering a 20-second loss to Francis Ngannou in May, Rozenstruik looked a bit more tentative than normal in the opening round. Dos Santos took advantage of that, using his trademark solid boxing skills to score with solid punches as he did his best to avoid Rozenstruik’s brutal leg kicks. Between rounds, a confident dos Santos corner suggested he take advantage of openings for takedowns.

In the second round, dos Santos continued to look sharp, popping off straight punches and looping hooks around the guard of Rozenstruik. As Dos Santos got more comfortable, he loosened up, bouncing on the balls of his feet and looking to continue picking spots to engage with the dangerous Rozenstruik.

Rozenstruik’s unique power means he’s never out of the fight, however, and he lunged forward with an uppercut and followed behind with a heavy right hand that dropped dos Santos to the canvas. Dos Santos tried to scramble back to his feet, but Rozenstruik poured on more heavy shots until the fight was called to a halt at the 3:47 mark of Round 2.

The victory was a big rebound moment for Rozenstruik after suffering the first loss of his career at the hands of Ngannou. Rozenstruik stopped short of calling out anyone for his next fight, saying he would leave it up to the fans and the UFC matchmakers, but admitted that he felt he needed the victory over former heavyweight champion dos Santos.

“It feels great,” Rozenstruik said of his victory. “I wanted to fight as soon as possible as soon after I lost. I went back to the gym right away. Me and my team, we discussed things and just got right back at it. I needed this win.”

I was destined to wear the FC Porto jersey, ”says the Brazilian striker, recalling that he had the opportunity to choose between dragons and Atlético Madrid:“ Atletico is a club respected all over the world, a great team, but I chose FC ” Porto “and made the right choice.”

FC Porto was my gateway to the world of football, it gave me fame and made me recognizable and respected. I started my career at Vitoria da Bahia and then left for Japan. I came to Porto at the age of 22 and this was one of the most important stages in which I played. Little was known of me, and in a short time I won a place and respect at the club and in the country, playing in the Champions League and made history with Porto. I really love this club. It’s nice to be among the top eleven institutions with over 120 years of history, ”he added.

Now beaming with Atlético Mineiro’s jersey, Hulk was asked if he plans to return to European football: “I have been at Atlético for eight months and it looks like I arrived yesterday. I feel good here. It’s nice to come back to my country after 16 years and do a good job at the club that opened the doors for me. Now I don’t see myself in another club. But you never know what will happen tomorrow and whether I will play again in Europe. “
