Jairzinho Rozenstruik on his next fight

During the post-fight press conference, Jairzinho Rozenstruik shared his thoughts on his next fight.

“When I’d like to fight next would be close to July or August,” Rozenstruik said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “Who I want to fight? You know what it is. I never say a name because then when that person doesn’t have time to fight, then you’re stuck out of the game.

That’s why I never called someone out. There’s a couple of names I didn’t face yet. For example, Tai Tuivasa, Derrick (Lewis), Serghei Spivac, and someone else, Tom Aspinall. Name it. But I never call someone out because I don’t want to wait on their time.

I want to be in shape, come back. Who’s available? Let’s get in. ”

Jairzinho Rozenstruik reflects on the win against Shamil Gaziev

“The fight expected it the way I expected it to go, except I didn’t think it would take that long, but he had a big, strong head.

Eventually, we still got the job done. But it took longer than we thought (it would). … I noticed that in the third round I already kind of broke him. He was kind of giving up. He was late reacting to the jab. I was in there, sticking to the game plan.

I was setting traps. He didn’t really go for it. I noticed that”.
