ESPN initially reported the move when this fight was moved to UFC on ESPN 8 to UFC 249.
At first, the fight between this two fighters was originally expected to serve as the main event for the UFC’s return to Columbus, Ohio, on March 28, but that time this card was eventually scrapped due to the ongoing disaster of coronavirus pandemic all over the world.

As for Jairzinho Rozenstruik the great MMA fighter, he is still a undefeated fighter in his MMA fight career, with a perfect 10-0 record including four straight KO in the UFC.
