UFC 249 Results: Charles ‘Boston Strong’ Rosa Absolutely Dominated In Loss


Charles “Boston Strong” Rosa’s roller-coaster UFC career continues, as he failed to win consecutive matches for the third time while fighting in the promotion.

Bryce Mitchell put on a clinic, dominating the fight on the ground from start to finish using superior grappling skills to win the bout via unanimous decision. The judges scored the fight 30-25, 30-25, 30-24.

Rosa was in trouble on many occasions throughout the fight after Mitchell put the Peabody, Mass. native in danger with multiple submission attempts. Rosa, who has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, used impressive submission defense skills to stay alive, but Mitchell’s repeated successful takedown attempts kept Rosa on his back for much of the fight.

Mitchell came close to submitting Rosa late in the second round with a vicious twister attempt, but Rosa was saved by the end of the round.

Rosa falls to 3-4 in the UFC. His last win came at UFC Fight Night Boston in October, when he submitted Manny Bermudez in the first round.
