Draws veteran March 26
BantamweightUFC
November 29, 2021
Rosa will take on Sara McMann in a bantamweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for March 26, Ag. Fight reports (via Marcel Dorff of MMADNA).
ANALYSIS
Rosa has started her UFC run with four consecutive decision victories and is averaging an impressive 7.88 significant strikes landed per minute over that span, so she's overdue for a step up in competition. That will arrive in the form of a 41-year-old gatekeeper in McMann, who is coming off a loss to current title challenger Julianna Pena in January. McMann has always done her best work on the ground, but Rosa brings a 91 percent takedown defense to the table, albeit over a much smaller sample size. If she can continue to defend well against a top-10 fighter here, there's room for immediate advancement to a high-profile fight in a relatively shallow division.

Sends Bethe Correia into retirement
BantamweightUFC
October 2, 2021
Rosa defeated Bethe Correia via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Rosa entered as a -720 favorite, which is retrospect, was far too low. Knowing full well Correia would be unable to damage her on the feet, Rosa continued to push forward to the tune of a 145-85 edge in total strikes landed. It's difficult to remember a single meaningful shot Correia connected with over the course of the entire bout, allowing Rosa to cruise to the easy victory. Rosa has now earned four straight unanimous decision wins (Correia, Joselyne Edwards, Vanessa Melo, Lara Procopio) to begin her UFC run. The Brazilian is still just 26 years of age and a legitimate prospect in a thin division, but we need to see how Rosa fares against better competition before assessing her true potential.
