Curtis Blaydes vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik- Next Heavyweight contender

Curtis Blaydes Is A Complete Package | UFC

Curtis Blaydes has been a top contender in the heavyweight division for a long time. He is always just one or two wins away from getting a title shot but unfortunately, that is yet to happen. In his last fight, he was just one victory away from getting a shot at the title but his hopes were destroyed by a brutal uppercut by Derrick Lewis who got that KO win over Blaydes and also replaced himself in the title picture. Before that setback, Blaydes had rattled off four consecutive wins including victories over Alexander Volkov and former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.

Jairzinho Rozenstruk also had a similar path as Blaydes in the UFC’s heavyweight division. He was on an amazing run in the division before a devasting first-round ko loss against the current champion Francis Ngannou. After that, he faced another defeat at the hands of rinsing contender Ciryl Gane. Those are the only two losses in his MMA career. Rozenstruk is coming off a first-round TKO of Augusto Sakai in the UFC Fight Night 189 main event in June.

Francis Ngannou, The UFC Heavyweight Champion

This fight is an important one for the heavyweight division as the champion is looking too strong for any contender to face. Francis Ngannou is matched up with Derrick Lewis after Ngannou’s fight with Jon Jones fell apart. No official announcement has been made for the heavyweight championship match but it will be in this summer.
