“I just did it, and I’m glad. They say hard work pays off, and that is all.”
Rozenstruik said from the Octagon after his impressive win.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik has emerged as one of the serious prospects in the heavyweight division as he has already won his two opening matches both via TKO. He knocked out Júnior Albini in his debut match in the second round at Fight Night 144 in February.
With the loss, Allen has dropped to his octagon record of 1-2 with his only win coming against Greg Hardy.
The record for the fastest octagon knockout remains intact with a seven-second stoppage for Todd Duffee over Tim Hague at UFC 102.
