Jairzinho Rozenstruik is finally getting his wish as he is set to fight former UFC heavyweight title challenger Francis Ngannou at UFC Fight Night event in March.

Ngannou has fought twice this year at UFC on ESPN 1 against Cain Velasquez and at UFC on ESPN 3 against Junior Dos Santos. Both his fights ended in first-round TKO. Ngannou was visibly upset over the last few months about UFC not booking him a fight. Ngannou is currently riding on a three-fight winning streak and all his wins have come via stoppages in the first round.

Rozenstruik made his UFC debut earlier this year at UFC Fight Night 144, where he knocked out Junior Albini in the second round. In his next fight, he stopped Allen Crowder in the first round and then followed up in his winning streak at UFC 244 against Andrei Arlovski where he knocked out the Russian in just 29 seconds.

Rozenstruik has been calling out Ngannou since before his fight against Overeem.
