UFC Fight Night Charles Rosa vs Darrick Minner preview. This will be the feature Featherweight fight of the night. There will be a lot of ground action in this one. Let’s take a look at both of these guys and how they matchup.
Rosa comes in 13-4 but he’s been winning and losing every other fight over his last 9. He’s got the 2 inch height advantage in this one standing at 5’9. He averages 3.41 significant strikes per minute and 2.01 takedowns. Rosa is a perfect 8-0 in fishers decided by submission and 3-1 in fights decided by knockout. 3 of his last 5 fights have gone to the judges.
Minner’s career record isn’t as impressive as Rosa’s but he’s still pretty solid at 25-11. He has the slight advantage when it comes to significant strikes per minute at 3.61 to 3.41 but make no mistake, he wants to get to the ground as quickly as possible. 22 of his 25 career wins have come via submission and just 1 has come via knockout. 12 of his last 13 fights have been decided by submission and he’s gone 8-5 during that stretch.
Rosa vs Minner Betting Preview
Rosa comes in as the -185 favorite and that’s likely based on his record as well as the fact that he has faced stronger competition. I still wouldn’t jump on that moneyline. If you’re going to take Rosa, you might as well take him to win by submission at +150 odds.
