UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs. Almeida, also known as UFC on ABC 4, just finished up from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The top of the billing witnessed ranked heavyweights go at it and the UFC’s #12 rated, Jailton Almeida, just submitted the #9 rated, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, in the opening round.
It didn’t take very long for Almeida to get the fight to the ground. Once there, there was very little that Rozenstruik could do. Almeida worked his way into the full mount, and rained down punishment until Rozenstruik gave up his back. The rear-naked choke followed, and Jairzinho was tapping out.
