Rosa defeated Kevin Aguilar via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
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.

ANALYSIS
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.
