Jairzinho Rozenstruik v Augusto Sakai Predictions & Tips

Jairzinho Rozenstruik Form


Rozenstruik’s (11-2, 10 KO/TKOs) rise up the heavyweight ladder has stalled over the past 12 months.

He made an immediate impact in the UFC with a string of four stoppage victories.

‘Bigi Boy’ stopped Junior Albini in the second before knocking out Allen Crowder and Andrei Arlovski in a combined 38 seconds.

Rozenstruik then pulled off a sensational last-gasp knockout of Alistair Overeem in a fight he was losing.

However, in his next fight he was stopped in just 20 seconds by Francis Ngannou.

Rozenstruik rebounded by knocking out ex-champion Junior Dos Santos, but in his sole outing of 2021 he dropped a decision to Ciryl Gane.

Augusto Sakai Form


Sakai’s win streak in the UFC was brought to a halt late last year and he is looking to rebound.

He debuted in 2018 with a third round TKO win over Chase Sherman.

Sakai then edged a split decision over Andreal Arlovski before knocking out Marcin Tybura.

The Brazilian made it four wins in a row when he registered another split decision, this time against Blagoy Ivanov.

He would not go the distance in his next outing though, which ended in a TKO defeat to Alistair Overeem.
