Rosa will be looking to get back on track after two losses to Ddamon Jackson and T.J. Brown. Before that, he alternated victories and defeats in 11 fights in a row, most of which occurred in the UFC. His most recent victory came in June 2021 by a split decision over Justin Jaynes.

The wood should also come back to normal. He will fight for the first time since losing a decision to Casey Kenny in Abu Dhabi in October 2020. The former Cage Warriors bantamweight champion led the UFC on a five-fight winning streak and won his first three fights in the promotion via submission. A third-round TKO loss to John Dodson in February 2020 ended an eight-game winning streak.

With the addition, the UFC London roster now includes:

  • Curtis Blades vs. Tom Aspinall

  • Jack Hermansson vs. Darren Till

  • Alexander Gustafson vs. Nikita Krylov

  • Charles Johnson vs Muhammad Mokaev

  • Mandy Bohm vs Victoria Leonardo

  • Paul Craig vs. Volkan Ozdemir

  • Mark Diakize vs. Damir Hadzovic

  • Jordan Leavitt vs. Paddy Pimblet

  • Jay Herbert vs. Kyle Nelson

  • Charles Rose vs. Nathaniel Wood
