Raul Rosas Jr. is an American mixed martial artist and professional wrestler currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He has been a professional fighter since 2011, and his record stands at 8-3.
Rosas began training for MMA when he was 16, but it wasn’t until 11 years later that he made his professional debut in 2011. By then, Rosas already had a black belt in Tae Kwon Do as well as experience in boxing and jiu-jitsu. He initially fought on regional circuits and quickly gained notoriety for his exciting style; Rosas often went for flashy moves such as spinning backfists or roundhouse kicks to score knockouts and submissions over opponents.
In 2018, Rosas signed with the UFC after compiling an impressive 7-2 record on the regional scene. His octagon debut came against Mark De La Rosa at UFC Fight Night 129, where he won by unanimous decision to kick off his promotional run with a victory. After one more win against Rogerio Bontorin at UFC Fight Night 136, he suffered two consecutive losses: first to Josh Emmett via knockout at UFC 231 before dropping another unanimous decision loss to Michael Johnson at UFC 236 last April 2019 Despite those setbacks however, he remains confident of making a successful run in the promotion once again; “I feel like I am ready for anything that comes my way now” said Rosas after suffering those losses “My spirit will never die! I will come back stronger than ever”
Outside of fighting inside the cage or ring however, there is still much we don’t know about Raul Rosas Jr., who prefers keeping his personal life out of public view instead focusing solely on honing his craft while continuing to entertain fans all over the world with thrilling performances every time the cage door closes behind him
