Rozenstruik (13-4 MMA) will be returning to action for the first time since scoring a 23-second knockout victory over Chris Daukaus in December of last year (see that here). That victory had snapped a two-fight losing skid for ‘Bigi Boy’, who had previously dropped bouts to Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov.

Meanwhile, Jailton Almeida (18-2 MMA) will enter tonight’s main event sporting a thirteen-fight winning streak, his latest being a second-round TKO victory over Shamil Abdurakhimov back in January. ‘Malhadinho’ has gone 4-0 with all four wins coming by stoppage since joining the UFC ranks in February of 2022.

Today’s UFC on ABC 4 event is co-headlined by a light heavyweight matchup featuring former title challenger Antony Smith taking on Johnny Walker.

Smith (36-17 MMA) will enter the contest looking to rebound, this after suffering a TKO loss to Magomed Ankalaev in most recent Octagon appearance last July. Prior to that setback, ‘Lionheart’ was riding a three-fight win streak which included stoppage victories over Devin Clark, Jimmy Crute and Ryan Spann.

Meanwhile, Johnny Walker (20-7 MMA) currently boasts a two-fight winning streak, this after scoring stoppage victories over Ion Cutelaba and Paul Craig in his most recent efforts. The 31-year-old Brazilian has gone 3-2 over his past five fights overall ahead of tonight’s matchup.

Also featured on today’s UFC on ABC 4 main card is a highly anticipated welterweight fight between Ian Garry and Daniel Rodriguez.

Garry (11-0 MMA) is coming off a thrilling TKO victory over Song Kenan at UFC 285 back in March. The Irish standout has gone a perfect 4-0 since joining the UFC ranks in November of 2021.

Meanwhile, Daniel Rodriguez (17-3 MMA) will be looking to rebound, this after suffering a submission loss to Neil Magny in his most recent Octagon appearance last November. Prior to that setback, ‘D-Rod’ had strung together a four-fight winning streak which included victories over Mike Perry and Kevin Lee.
