CHARLES ROSA VS DARRICK MINNER LOWDOWN

Charles Rosa (13-4) made his UFC debut all the way back in 2014 but has only fought eight times going 4-4 with a consecutive win-loss streak. After a TKO loss to Shane Burgos in 2017, Rosa was out for over two years with a neck injury but returned to submit the jiu-jitsu wizard Manny Bermudez. He returned in May last year to get the loss out the way with Bryce Mitchell earning the unanimous decision but made a quick turnaround a month later to earn a split decision on Kevin Aguilar.

Darrick Minner (25-11) has been very active fighting an average of more than four fights a year since his pro debut in 2012. He also managed to get his first two UFC fights in the pandemic hit 2020. He stepped in as a replacement for a very tough debut eventually getting submitted by Grant Dawson but responded with a merciless submission of his own against TJ Laramie,

CHARLES ROSA VS DARRICK MINNER PREDICTION

Minner is a submission savage and will hunt his 23rd from the bell but Rosa has terrific submission defence and is a black belt which makes this a compelling strap. Despite having less fights, Rosa has better experience, and he should have enough skill and nous to defend the takedown and submission attempts like he did with Bryce Mitchell.

Unless Minner catches him and knocks him down, Rosa should be able to keep out of danger and snatch a decision.
