Almeida Subs Rozenstruik in First at UFC on ABC 4

UFC on ABC 4
Rising heavyweight Jailton Almeida gave a textbook performance of Brazilian jiu-jitsu for mixed martial arts, Saturday, submitting Jairzinho Rozenstruik in one round in the main event of UFC on ABC 4. It could also be said Rozenstruik, known as a kickboxer, put on a display of how not to fight as a striker in MMA. He came out at the opening bell immediately winging a big overhand right as Almeida instantly dropped down for a leg tackle.

While Rozenstruik defended that attempt, Almeida wisely backed away drawing Rozenstruik in. As his opponent stepped forward, Almeida quickly shot in for another leg tackle, getting it easily this time. Once on his back, Rozenstruik couldn't do much except try to hold Almeida's left leg in half guard.

The Brazilian, who came in riding a 13-fight winning streak, patiently looked to improve his position and free his leg finally passing to side control, then to full mount. A couple of punches had Rozenstruik turning to his stomach allowing Almeida to easily cinch in the rear choke for a quick submission victory. Almeida ran his record to 19-2 and 5-0 in the UFC while Rozenstruik fell to 13-5, 7-5 in the UFC.
