Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Chris Daukaus were added to UFC 282


Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Chris Daukaus will face off in Las Vegas two months after they were originally scheduled to meet.

The veteran heavyweights have been added to UFC 282, which takes place Dec. 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. They originally were set to meet in Sin City at UFC Vegas 61 on Oct. 1, but they were removed from the card for undisclosed reasons.

Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed the shift after an initial report from MMA Junkie.

After promising UFC starts, Rozenstruik (*) and Daukaus hope to overcome recent setbacks in the octagon. Rozenstruik is 2-4 in the octagon after a 4-0 start, with back-to-back losses in fights against Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov marking his most recent appearances. Daukaus has, however, lost back-to-back fights by knockout during meetings with Blaydes and Derrick Lewis.

The end-of year PPV event will feature a rematch of champ Jiri prochazka against ex-champ Glover Teixeira for the light heavyweight title.
