Charles Rosa vs Damon Jackson Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Charles Rosa (14-5) has alternate losses and wins in the UFC. His two-fight 2021 campaign has seen him suffer a decision defeat to Darrick Minner before bouncing back with a decision of his own over Justin Jaynes.
Four years after first leaving the world’s largest fight promotion, Damon Jackson (18-4-1) finally secured his first UFC victory by upsetting Mirsad Bektic via bonus-winning guillotine. He then suffered a one-punch knockout loss to top prospect Ilia Topuria soon after.
Rosa’s complete and fundamental inability to stop a takedown figures to doom him once again against Jackson, whose top game is more than sufficient to shut down whatever offense Rosa tries to generate off of his back.
Rosa is admittedly quite a bit more durable than Jackson, who has been knocked cold three times in his professional career, but his historical struggles with Jackson’s archetype and apparent lack of improvement in his defensive grappling despite all of those setbacks had us picking “The Leech” for the victory. In the end, Jackson cruises to victory with regular takedowns.
