'Just. Like. That!' UFC heavyweight Jairzinho Rozenstruik makes history with stunning KO (VIDEO)
The undefeated Surinamese heavyweight improved his career record to an impressive 8-0 with the finish of Crowder on the undercard of the UFC's card in South Carolina.Also on rt.com Watch 'The Korean Zombie' blast his way to victory in 58 seconds at UFC Greenville (VIDEO)
The finish came as Rozenstruik landed a short left hand in the opening moments which dropped his opponent, before finishing on the ground with a flurry of punches. The sheer expediency of the win earned the fighter a Performance of the Night bonus, as well as social media infamy as video of his handiwork did the rounds on various platforms.
Incredibly, the brief KO wasn't even the fastest in the division's history. That honor goes to former UFC heavyweight Todd Duffee, who took just seven seconds to defeat the late Tim Hague at UFC 102 in August 2009.
"Crowder doesn’t know where he is, he’s looking around thinking ‘what just happened!," former UFC champion Michael Bisping commented on the broadcast.
Allen Crowder, the man who was defeated in the 'blink of an eye' contest, defeated controversial former NFL player Greg Hardy in his last bout - and many are hoping that Rozenstruik is next to get his hands on the former Dallas Cowboy.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik is my favorite MMA name. It resembles the lovechild of a favela boss and a German missile. And the bearer is a roly-poly heavyweight destroyer from RIZIN. I love this guy. #UFCGreenvillepic.twitter.com/icL766wEOz— Kyle Johnson (@VonPreux) June 22, 2019
