UFC 252 is around the corner and it will be great to see the Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic rematch from last year. However, another fight that is making the headline is the co-main event featuring heavyweights Junior Dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
The former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cigano has a very rich history and has amassed a lot of success during his 13-year-long association with the company. He tasted his first defeat in the UFC after winning eight straight fights. Everyone remembers his hot rivalry with Cain Velasquez that led to a trilogy fight.
The 36-year-old has a 21-7-0 MMA record and a 15-6 UFC record as he enters the octagon in August.
Junior Cigano looks ready to make his return to UFC!
The Brazilian is active on Instagram and regularly uploads his workout pictures with his team. His physique is lean, chiseled, and worth showing off.
His recent post said, “It’s Saturday Thank GOD for one more great week of work.” Now this proves he has given weeks and weeks of work into his upcoming bout.
The heavyweight is looking younger than his age, sporting that dashing mustache and lustrous confidence. An incredible transformation indeed!

Junior Dos Santos vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik
Rozenstruik boasts of a record of 10-1-0. He has only tasted defeat once against the very man who bested Santos as well.
UFC 249 saw Francis Ngannou take on Rozenstruik in the cage and bring the fight to a humiliating close by a 20-second stoppage. The Surinamese had earlier defeated Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski.
The last time Santos fought Overeem was in 2015, where he lost in the second round. So this fight becomes very important as a comeback fight for both the fighters recovering from losses.
This makes it very interesting to see who can prove himself a bigger man in the heavyweight category. These images prove that the men are working hard to smash each other in battle.
