Fortunes changed for five at UFC on ESPN 7

Saturday night’s Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Alistair Overeem fight was supposed to answer the questions about Rozenstruik, who was 9-0 with eight knockouts, and had finished his last two opponents in a combined 38 seconds.

Rozenstruik knocked out Overeem (45-18. one no contest), by far his toughest opponent to date. It came with four seconds left in the fifth round, keeping his perfect record and an incredible 90 percent win via knockout percentage.

But if anything, we came out of the fight with more questions as well as some conflicting answers.

While the win strengthens his climb up the thin heavyweight ladder, it also established key things.
