Jairzinho Rozenstruik to replace Walt Harris in UFC Fight Night main event against Alistair Overeem

Heavyweight up and comer Jairzinho Rozenstruik will face the biggest test of his young career in his next bout.

Coming off another strong performance; African fighter Jairzinho Rozenstruik will replace Walt Harris against Alistair Overeem to headline UFC on ESPN 7 on December 7.

Harris, who was originally scheduled to headline opposite Overeem, bowed out of the fight due to a deeply personal matter in regards to his still-missing step-daughter. If any readers have any information regarding this matter please contact Walt Harris.

Undefeated in his career, Rozenstruik (9-0, 3-0 in UFC) will take a step up in competition to face Overeem after earning three straight wins to kick off his octagon tenure. In addition to his knockout over Arlovski this past weekend, the 31-year-old heavyweight from Suriname has also finished Junior Albini and Allen Crowder in his past performances inside the Octagon.

As for Overeem (45-17, 10-6 in UFC), he looks to build momentum with knockouts over Sergei Pavlovich and Alexey Oleynik marking his past two appearances. Overeem, a former Heavyweight title contender, will enter his 17th bout with the UFC come December and has seven finishes of his 10 in the Octagon.

UFC on ESPN 7 will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C and will air live on ESPN on December 7.
