Takes split decision in Vegas
June 13, 2020
Rosa defeated Kevin Aguilar via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Rosa, who is best known for his mat exploits, has to be thrilled he emerged with any sort of victory in a fight that was primarily contested on the feet. The fighters combined for three takedown attempts and each failed. What Rosa did do successfully is make a concerted effort to damage Aguilar with leg strikes. Rosa's athleticism is limited, and he gets by with grit and determination. That was on full display in this one. Rosa has somehow managed to alternate wins and losses in his first eight UFC bouts.
Booked for June 13
June 4, 2020
Rosa is scheduled to fight Kevin Aguilar in a featherweight match at the UFC's June 13 event, reports.
Rosa is coming off a defeat via unanimous decision against Bryce Mitchell at UFC 249. Having switched back and forth between wins and losses for his first seven UFC fights, he'll now look to continue that pattern against Aguilar and return to the victory column. Rosa will benefit from a two inch height advantage, but Aguilar boasts the superior reach.
No-shows UFC 249 loss
May 9, 2020
Rosa lost to Bryce Mitchell via unanimous decision (25-30, 25-30, 24-30) at UFC 249 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
Rosa deserves credit for seeing the final bell. He was dominated throughout the course of the 15-minute bout but managed to dig deep and fight off countless submission attempts from Mitchell. Offensively, Rosa accomplished nothing. He was CREDITED with seven total strike attempts in the fight. On the bright side, six of them landed. In all seriousness, Rosa is known as a tough and durable fighter and that was on full display on Saturday. He was simply hopelessly outclassed against a much better opponent. Rosa has now alternated wins and losses in his first seven fights with the company.
Confirms he's facing Mitchell
April 23, 2020
Rosa's scheduled featherweight matchup against Bryce Mitchell has been moved to UFC 249 on May 9, he confirmed to Nolan King of
Mitchell announced via his personal Instagram on Wednesday that he had signed a bout agreement to face Rosa on May 9, and Rosa confirmed the bout shortly thereafter. Rosa currently trains at American Top Team in Florida, the state rumored to host UFC 249 (which has yet to be officially confirmed by the promotion). His gym remains open with limited access to sparring partners during the pandemic, but Rosa is still living with siblings he can train with, and he accesses the gym whenever he can. As of Thursday morning, Rosa is approximately a (+165) betting underdog for the matchup. Also of note is the fact this bout is currently scheduled to kick off the entire card.
Added to UFC Oklahoma City
March 3, 2020
Rosa will square off against Bryce Mitchell at UFC Oklahoma City.
Rosa is coming off an impressive submission victory over Manny Bermudez in the first round of his last bout during mid-October. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to follow up a victory with another through six bouts in his UFC career. He will aim to change that in OKC but will be giving up an inch in both height and reach to Mitchell.
