One fight that seems less certain than any other to go the distance sees Junior dos Santos attempt to stop his run of knockout defeats against one of the hardest punchers in the UFC: Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Santos vs. Rozenstruik Betting Prediction & Odds
The MMA gods might appear to have offered legend Dos Santos up for slaughter considering he’s lost back-to-back fights for the first time in his career (both by TKO). But it’s worth noting those losses came against Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes, two of the hottest assets in the heavyweight division.
New Jersey customers can bet 10-1 Rozenstruik as a -150 (1.67) leader with William Hill bonus ($10 free bet), but future Hall of Famer Dos Santos looks the more intriguing pick at +125 (2.25).

While Rozenstruik’s obvious punching power told against former opponents like Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski, he doesn’t pack the same strength as Ngannou nor the grappling of Blaydes.
That being said, we’re backing “Cigano” to rediscover his winning stride and snap the loss streak while inflicting a second straight KO defeat upon Rozenstruik.
