The UFC Dutch heavyweight fighter, Alistair Overeem, suffered a terrible open cut on his upper lip this Saturday, after he was brutally knocked out by Surinamese Jairzinho Rozenstruik, just a few seconds after the fight ended in the framework of an event at the Capital One Arena (Washington, USA).

Most of the fight turned out to be quite strategic and without much action. However, at the end of the fifth round, Rozenstruik managed to connect a blunt left, which broke Overeem’s lip and ended the fight.
If it had not been for that blow, the Dutchman would have won his third consecutive victory, since the scorecards were favorable so far for Overeem.
‘Big Boy’, meanwhile, achieved one of the most important victories of his career, successfully defending his undefeated (10-0).
