304

Marcin Tybura’s return to the win column at UFC Fight Night 239 didn’t just earn him a victory; it also attracted the attention of fellow heavyweight contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik. 

Fresh off his impressive submission win over Tai Tuivasa, Tybura found himself on the receiving end of a callout from Rozenstruik, who wasted no time in expressing his interest in a potential matchup.

The victory over Tuivasa marked a significant rebound for Marcin Tybura following his TKO loss to Tom Aspinall in July 2023. Speaking at the post-fight press conference, Tybura remained open to the idea of facing Rozenstruik, emphasizing his willingness to accept fights proposed by the UFC. 

However, he also expressed a preference for opponents ranked higher than himself. Despite Tybura’s openness to the matchup, the history between him and Rozenstruik adds an intriguing layer to the potential showdown. 

The two heavyweights were initially scheduled to meet in January 2022, only for the fight to be postponed due to Tybura’s injury. Now, with both fighters eager to test their skills against each other, the stage seems set for a long-awaited showdown.
