Erosa has a bout versus Nate Landwehr on Feb. 20 in the works, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Erosa is looking to carry over some momentum from his slugfest with Sean Woodson in his last bout, which saw Erosa and Woodson each land north of 100 significant strikes prior to Erosa landing a late-match submission via choke. He's likely headed for another match with bountiful strikes being thrown in each direction, with Erosa likely looking to keep his distance given his four-inch height and two-inch reach advantages.
Earns stunning first UFC win
LightweightUFC

Erosa defeated Sean Woodson via submission (D'Arce Choke) at 2:44 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Erosa entered Saturday's event having lost his first three UFC bouts. Who knew all it would take for him to earn his first victory with the company was accepting a fight on four days notice against an undefeated top prospect? All the credit goes to "Juicy J" for this one. He had a rough go of it in Round 1 but managed to handle everything Woodson threw at him on the feet. He looked significantly better in Round 2 before scoring a pair of huge takedowns in the early portion of Round 3. The D'Arce choke that ended the fight would follow shortly thereafter. It would have been very difficult for the UFC to run Erosa back out there had he lost this one, but that is no longer a concern. For the few of you out there who had him as a +440 underdog, go cash those tickets. Erosa will cash in as well, taking home an extra $50,000 after being awarded Performance of the Night honors.

Remains winless in UFC career

May 18, 2019
Erosa lost to Julio Arce via KO (head kick) at 1:49 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Rochester, New York.
ANALYSIS
Having been dominated in each of his first three official UFC bouts, Erosa's time with the company may have very well come to a close with this latest defeat. Unable to defend himself on both the feet and the mat, Saturday's setback came after vicious high kick from Arce cracked Erosa's jaw and knocked him out cold. The 31-year-old has suffered all three of his defeats with the company within the past seven months.
