UFC star’s lip explodes in final second madness

Jairzinho Rozenstruik has claimed a shock TKO victory over Alistair Overeem in the dying seconds of their highly-anticipated main card UFC bout on Sunday.

But it's the devastating injury that Rozenstruik left his rival that is stealing headlines across the globe.

With just 11 seconds left on the clock, Rozenstruik landed a savage right hook flush on Overeem's mouth, ripping his top lip in two and exposing his teeth underneath.

The exploding action of his lip tearing apart was enough to leave even the most hardened of fight fans wincing as social media went into meltdown.


Unbelievably Overeem managed to get back to his feet after the blow but referee Dan Miragliotta had seen enough, ending the fight by way of TKO with four seconds remaining.

It was an unfortunate turn of events for Overeem who was likely to win the fight on a points decision had it lasted a few more seconds.

Rozenstruik hail mary strike him bag his tenth consecutive mixed martial arts win, in what is proving to be a promising rise.

The Surinamese fighter refused to touch gloves before the fight, leaving Overeem hanging with outstretched arms.

Rozenstruik's impressive record now stands at 10-0, with four wins in the Octagon, all via knockout.
