After taking out Alistair Overeem last weekend and calling out Francis Ngannou, it looks like Jairzinho Rozenstruik has received his wish.

Rozenstruik came from behind at UFC DC last Saturday and stopped Overeem with just four seconds left. Afterward, the experienced kickboxer called for a fight with the heavyweight contender, Ngannou.

Now, ESPN is reporting that sources say Ngannou and Rozenstruik have agreed to fight at March 28th event in Columbus.

Rozenstruik (10-0) has gone 4-0 to date in the Octagon and he has finished all four of his opponents.

The former title challenger Ngannou (14-3) is coming off a quick, stoppage win over former champ Junior dos Santos in June. The heavy-handed fighter has won three in a row.
