    Heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Marcin Tybura to Meet at Feb. 26 UFC Event


    Jairzinho
    Rozenstruik
    and Marcin
    Tybura
    will lock horns in a heavyweight matchup at the Ultimate
    Fighting Championshipโ€™s Feb. 26 card.

    The booking was first reported
    by MMA journalist Marcel Dorff. UFC Fight Night takes place at the
    UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a lightweight showdown
    between Beneil
    Dariush
    and Islam
    Makhachev
    .

    Rozenstruik is coming off a rocky 2021 in which he lost two of his
    three Octagon appearances, dropping unanimous verdicts to current
    interim king Ciryl Gane
    and top contender Curtis
    Blaydes
    . In between, he scored a first-round TKO of Augusto
    Sakai
    in the UFC Fight Night 189 headliner. โ€œBigi Boyโ€ is 6-3
    in UFC competition overall, with other notable knockouts of
    Junior
    dos Santos
    , Alistair
    Overeem
    and Andrei
    Arlovski
    to his credit.

    Tybura, meanwhile, saw a five-bout winning streak come to an end at
    UFC 267, where he dropped a three-round verdict to Alexander
    Volkov
    this past October. Tyburaโ€™s resurgence came on the heels
    of a stretch where he lost four of five Octagon appearances from
    November 2017 to September 2019. His record includes wins over the
    likes of Walt Harris,
    Greg
    Hardy
    , Ben
    Rothwell
    , Stefan
    Struve
    and Arlovski.
