He took the fight at UFC on ESPN 7 on short notice as it was Walt Harris who was originally scheduled to headline the fight card alongside Overeem. However, even though his fight against Overeem is the biggest of his career till date, he already has future opponents in mind. He recently appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, where he revealed that he wants to fight former title challenger Francis Ngannou.

For me, beating Alistair Overeem means a lot, but the fight I’m looking for is the Francis Ngannou fight. He’s a big, scary guy and I think that’s amazing. You put two big heavyweights who are strong and hit hard to create a bomb in the Octagon. I like exciting fights. To me, that would be a great fight. That’s the goal for now,” Rozenstruik said.

We’re looking to be the best fighter in the world. In order to be the best, you have to beat the best. We are professionals and I like that fight, me against Francis Ngannou, two big scary guys. That’s exciting for me, that’s a big challenge. I really want to do that challenge also for myself and also to entertain the UFC fans. I think everybody wants to see that fight.” he concluded.
