UFC Fight Night 238 results: Jairzinho Rozenstruik earns TKO win after Marc Goddard overhears Shamil Gaziev’s comments on corner

Half of the main event of UFC Fight Night 238 apparently had an eye problem between rounds, and referee Marc Goddard sensed something was up.

A conversation ensued, clouded by a language barrier, but Goddard maneuvered through it and waved the fight off between the fourth and fifth rounds to give Jairzinho Rozenstruik (14-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) a TKO victory over the favored Shamil Gaziev (12-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

According to the broadcast, Gaziev indicated that he was having trouble seeing, although the cause of that problem is not entirely clear.

After a strong start, Gaziev ate a huge amount of jabs throughout the twenty minutes causing notable damage and bleeding from his nose. Gaziev continued to press the action despite his lack of success.

But Rozenstruik grew stronger as the fight progressed. Just before the stoppage, Rozenstruik had his best attack of the fight when he upped the ante in an attack on Gaziev.

Surinamese Rozenstruik, 35, is getting back in the win column, moving to 2-1 in his most recent three matches.

Going into the fight, Gaziev was a relative unknown with only one UFC appearance, a TKO win over Martin Buday, to his name.

The heavyweight fight took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
