Youngest UFC star gets startled by NSFW question from MMA veteran

Raul Rosas Jr. has stormed into the MMA scene, captivating audiences and raising eyebrows with his extraordinary talent and determination. He made his debut as the youngest-ever UFC competitor, making him one of the most hyped names of the year.

UFC CEO Dana White hasn’t shied away from discussing this prodigious combatant. His initial matches played a pivotal role in boosting his popularity, though he faced a temporary setback in his second bout against Christian Rodriguez.

However, Rosas Jr. quickly bounced back by seizing victory against Terrence Mitchell at UFC Fight Night 227.

In a recent podcast hosted by seasoned veteran Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, the conversation took an unexpected turn. While discussing various aspects of the sport, Jackson threw Rosas Jr. off guard by inquiring about a personal aspect – his virginity.

Rosas Jr. found himself in an uncomfortable situation but responded “Not anymore.” He admitted that he was no longer a virgin and disclosed losing his virginity at the age of 15.

Jackson’s exaggerated reaction added to Rosas Jr.’s unease. But Jackson clarified later that it was all in jest, lightening the mood.

At 19 years old with a remarkable MMA record of 8-1, Raul Rosas Jr. strides into 2024 with determination after overcoming setbacks. Despite his youth, he sets his sights high and aspires to climb the ladder in the UFC bantamweight rankings.

Expressing his eagerness to participate in the upcoming Noche UFC which is slated to occur at the Sphere, Rosas Jr. stresses the significance of staying active in bouts. He aims to position himself strategically for opportunities that may lead him towards securing a spot in the top 15 rankings.

Following his victory against Terrence Mitchell by first-round TKO at the first Noche UFC, Rosas Jr. want to be involved in more events that honor his ancestry. When asked about potential opponents for the upcoming year, he remains uncertain.
