Jairzinho Rozenstruik (12-2) returned to winning habits on Sunday and after losing to Cyril Gane with style, he stopped August Sakai (15-3-1) in the last second of the first round for whom this was the second defeat in a row.
For most of this fight, the ‘Big Boy’ was the one who imposed the rhythm and kept the center of the cage. But there was not too much action at the opening, they were both very careful, they were waiting for the opening for the counters, they were looking for that big shot, and one of them sat down at the very end of the introductory round.
Rosenstruik put in a higher gear, pushed Sakai to the very edge of the cage, then connected the left-right combination and knocked down his opponent. Herb Dean jumped in and that was the end of the match.
Tybura vs Harris
Marcin Tybura (22-6) continued to perform well in the Octagon.
The Pole, who at one point had four defeats in five matches, is now on a string of five wins, the last of which was achieved against the dangerous Walt Harris (13-10, 1 NC). It was the American who better opened the title fight of this event.
Harris started aggressively and at one point reached Tybur from the turn. Walt estimated that it was the right moment to continue the attack, he rushed with all his might, maybe trying too much at one point, but then still shook the opponent who was saved by trying to knockdown.
Moments later, somewhere in the middle of the first mine, Tybura knocks down Harris, 'takes' his back, and with a series of blows, it was ended. Walt, let’s mention, this was the third defeat in a row. At the same event, Roman Dolidze defeated Laurean Staropoli by a unanimous decision of the referees, and in the same way, his first victory since November 2018 was recorded by Santiago Ponzinibbio, who defeated Miguel Baeza in Las Vegas in a fantastic and bonus-winning fight.
