Jairzinho Rozenstruik is dead set on making it two wins in a row when he squares off against Curtis Blaydes on September 25.
‘Bigi Boy’ returned to the win column last time out with an impressive first-round TKO of Augusto Sakai.
Prior to that, the 33-year-old disappointingly slumped to an uneventful decision defeat against Ciryl Gane.
Blaydes is coming off a disappointing defeat of his own. ‘Razor’ started well in his last fight but was caught clean and knocked out by Derrick Lewis back in February.
In a recent interview with LowKickMMA, Rozenstruik revealed he watches every UFC heavyweight fight. The former kickboxer appears to be drawing confidence from his viewings of Blaydes’ most recent loss.
“I don’t care who wins but I take a lot of things from that fight,” Rozenstruik said. “I watch all the heavyweight fights, it doesn’t matter if the guys are ranked or not. I’m watching all the heavyweight fights and I take a lot of things from that fight. I try to see where the mistakes are made and how other fighters, we get on the mistakes.
“Curtis ended on the bad side of the fight,” Rozenstruik added. “So, you can see he’s not perfect and as the last fight with Ciryl Gane and Derrick (Lewis), it shows the same thing.
The UFC title contender understands that at heavyweight all it takes is one punch for your fight and night to come to a devastating end.
“So, it is MMA. It is the heavyweight division. If you got punched in the face, the fight can be over,” Rozenstruik concluded. “So, I’m preparing myself to be faster, to be first, and to be victorious the September 25th.”
