Video: Jairzinho Rozenstruik MOBBED by screaming fans, local media in Suriname

And a free fruit basket, to boot!

Rising Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight title contender, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, scored the biggest win of his young mixed martial arts (MMA) career by stopping Alistair Overeem in the UFC on ESPN 7 main event last weekend in Washington, DC.

Rewatch the lip-busting highlights here.

And if you think the reception he got upon his return to Suriname was impressive, just imagine what the local fans — and adoring media — would do for “Bigi Boy” if he ever brought home a UFC title, currently held by longtime veteran Stipe Miocic.

Rozenstruik, 31, has racked up a perfect 10-0 record — with nine knockouts — since turning pro back in 2012, which includes his four straight wins under the UFC banner. After starching Junior Albini and Allen Crowder earlier this year, the power-punching RIZIN export flattened Andrei Arlovski at UFC 244, leading to the bout against Overeem.

Maybe it’s time for that Francis Ngannou fight after all.
