Jairzinho Rozenstruik has done it again.
The Surinamese heavyweight demolished Andrei Arlovski at UFC 244 to earn a 29-second knockout victory.
His remarkable power was on display as he clipped Arlovski with a jab in the first seconds of the fight that caused Arlovski to stumble.

Rozenstruik’s incredible power has been on display ever since his UFC debut in February this year. He managed to stop Junior Albini in the second round with punches and kicks at UFC Fortaleza in his first fight with the promotion.
He then backed up that victory with a remarkable nine-second knockout of Allen Crowder at UFC Greenville in June. For his effort, Rozenstruik now has his name against the second-fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history.
Speaking to John Hyon Ko of The Body Lock before UFC 244, Rozenstruik explained that he had no particular opponent in mind if he was to defeat Arlovski.
“I just want to beat [everyone in] the rankings and the top 15, I’m looking forward to that,” Rozenstruik said.
“As soon as I’m getting in there, I’m going to start taking them out and try to be the heavyweight champion.”
