UFC heavyweight Jairzinho Rozenstruik is counting down the days to his highly anticipated fight with Francis Ngannou.
The undefeated Surinamese fighter shared a picture of himself and his next adversary, marking the two-week period left until they meet. The pair is scheduled to fight at the UFC 249 fight card which should be taking place on May 9 somewhere in Florida, US.
Both Rozenstruik and the 33-year-old Nagnnou insisted that this bout should be for the interim heavyweight title.
Rozenstruik, 32, was supposed to meet Ngannou on March 28 in the main event of UFC Fight Night 172, but the event was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Then the fight was rescheduled for April 18, but UFC 249 was also postponed. Ngannou is currently #2 in the heavyweight rankings, while Rozenstruik is #6.
