Jailton Almeida made easy work of heavyweight contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik earlier today (Sat., May 13, 2023) at UFC Charlotte live on ABC/ESPN/ESPN+ from inside Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., when he stopped “Bigi Boy” with a first-round submission (rear-naked choke).

In addition to the heavyweight headliner, UFC Charlotte played host to a collection of knockouts, submissions, and memorable performances. Check out some of them below:
