  • Jairzinho Rozenstruik took to social media to express his disapproval of Herb Dean’s decision to stop the fight, resulting in his TKO loss to Alexander Volkov
  • “Bigi Boy” wants to get back inside the octagon sooner rather than later

Jairzinho Rozenstruik came in prepared to go toe-to-toe with Alexander Volkov in their main event bout at UFC Vegas 56. However, “Bigi Boy” didn’t get the outcome he expected as “Drago” made quick work of him in the very first round, beating him via TKO.

It didn’t take long before Rozenstruik expressed his disappointment over the result of the fight and shared his honest take on the matter.

A confusing call?

On Twitter, Rozenstruik explained why he reckoned that referee in charge Herb Dean’s decision “confused” him. As per the 34-year-old, he was indeed in trouble when he took a hard right hand from Volkov but in reality, he was “far from giving up.”

“(1/2) Hi everyone. I’m kinda confused on how the fight went and I’m disappointed that it was stopped,” Rozenstruik wrote. ” It definitly was a troubling situation, but I was far from giving up the fight. Did someone lay flat on the ground with his eyes shut? That’s what we call a knockout. #UFCVegas56.”

“(2/2) Alexander and I basically just started exchanging some heavy strikes. The stuff you ‘all wanted to see!.” he added.


Yearning to bounce back

Regardless of how Rozenstruik take it, the defeat saw him logging his second loss in a row. However, “Bigi Boy” vows to make a strong comeback and concluded:

“Big up to @AlexDragoVolkov for taking the fight. I’ve no noteable damage and I like to fight soon. #UFCVegas56”

It is yet to be determined whether Rozenstruik’s UFC Vegas 56 loss to Volkov will also see his name dropping down in the rankings. Nevertheless, it’s nice to know that the heavyweight contender is eager to get back to his winning ways ASAP.
