Falls in first fight of new deal

Rosa lost to T.J. Brown via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Accepting this fight on extremely short notice after Gabriel Benitez (undisclosed) was forced to withdraw, Rosa proved to be his typical durable self, but was unable to generate enough offense to earn the decision. He allowed Brown to connect on 6-of-8 takedown attempts, which torpedoed his chances of emerging with the victory. A member of the UFC roster for more than seven years now, Rosa falls to 5-7 with the company. Oddly enough, the UFC recently handed the Massachusetts native a new four-fight contract, so Rosa isn't going anywhere despite his mediocre record with the company.
Re-ups with UFC, joins Vegas 46 card

January 12, 2022
Rosa (toe) signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC on Wednesday and is set to return to the Octagon on Saturday at UFC Vegas 46, stepping in as a short-notice replacement for Gabriel Benitez (undisclosed) while taking on T.J. Brown in a lightweight bout, Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Benitez-Brown matchup was initially scheduled as a featherweight bout, but Brown (15-8-0) and Rosa (14-6-0) will have their fight contested at 155 pounds. The short-notice addition to the card isn't an ideal setup for Rosa, who went 1-2 over three fights in 2021 before his previous UFC contract expired. Rosa suffered a toe injury in his most recent bout in October, but he looks to be back to full health now.

Rosa lost to Damon Jackson via unanimous decision (28-29, 27-29, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
One of the greatest streaks in the history of MMA rolls on. Rosa has now alternated wins and losses in his past dozen bouts. Rosa, as he often does, finished strong, but he was too far behind on the judges' scorecards to close the gap. The Massachusetts native was actually the better man on the feet in this 15-minute bout, but it's difficult to win when you give up six takedowns to your opposition for 10:24 worth of control time. Rosa doesn't win as much as he would hope, but he's fun to watch and tough as nails. He's almost always competitive every single time he steps into the Octagon, and that is a trait which produces a ton of value for a company which holds an event most every week.
Draws Jackson in October

Rosa will take on Damon Jackson in a featherweight bout at the UFC event on Oct. 9, MMA Island reports.
ANALYSIS
Rosa is coming off a split decision victory over Justin Jaynes back in late June. He has alternated wins and losses in his 10 fights since joining the UFC back in 2014. He will look to start a streak in October against a fighter with only two fights in the UFC under his belt.
