We all remember how a couple of years ago, Bryce received the most ridiculous injury in the history of MMA. “I was going to train, but tore the scrotum. They will sew me up. I held a board over my head, and the drill was tucked into my pants. The drill flew off and got tangled in my balls. I’m serious! Of course, I can not upload photos. When they sew me up, I will return to training. ”
Bryce returned and continued to win. This guy currently has twelve victories in MMA without a single defeat, including two fights in the UFC, which both, incidentally, were recognized as “Performances of the evening”. In his previous fight, in December last year, he won in the first round Matt Sayles. Of his twelve victories, he scored nine with tricks and won three times with decisions (no wins with punches).
Mitchell’s fight with Rosa was supposed to take place on May 2, but, for obvious reasons, it was canceled first and then included in the UFC 249 card. However, Bryce was getting ready. “I am in doubt (whether the fight will take place), but I will train as if my opponent will come out and try to kill me – with this attitude I will be in good shape. I will train to be ready for the appointed date”.
A fighter is training at the American Top Team Camp. It is best disclosed when working on the ground, where it resorts to the help of the black belt in its arsenal for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but at the same time, the American is not deprived of standing skills and is always ready to compete on his feet.
Rosa, like his opponent, also played for a while amateur, but there he collected a much more impressive record 11-2. Having won the first three fights on a professional level, he signed a contract with the CES promotion, where he subsequently scored five victories, while simultaneously highlighting win at Fight Lab. As a result of this period, the American issued a record of 9-0, as a result of which he received a call from UFC scouts.
In the first battle, under the sign of promotion, Charles turned out to be weaker than Dennis Siver, but then caught Sean Soriano on the submission. And although he was able to restore his reputation, after that the American was expected only unfortunate exchanges of victories with defeats. From that time to the present, the American by separate decision and TKO failed in the fights against Yair Rodriguez and Shane Burgos, respectively. At the same time, he unanimously defeated Kyle Bochniak on points, and in the last performance he stopped Manny Bermudez.
The last fights of Mitchell and Rosa took place 5 and 7 months ago, respectively. The fighters expected to meet at the UFC Fight Night 174 tournament, scheduled for May 3, as a result of which they began to pass the camp at the end of February. And although all this time the situation was in a fog, they had the opportunity and continued to train in order to be ready to go into the octagon if necessary.

Mitchell vs Rosa Prediction
Returning after almost three years of inactivity, Charles was transferred by Manny Bermudez, who smashed him on the ground and got caught on a mistake. Not the most expressive statement, which left open the question of his form and current skills. Bryce has an advantage in height and span of arms – by 3 centimeters in both cases.
Rosa likes to work on his feet, but he doesn’t differ in phenomenal skills, he often prefers hacking and misses more blows than he does. Moreover, he is much worse than Mitchell in terms of accuracy and no less significantly loses in defense. And although in the best way the fighters reveal themselves on the ground, they both have gaps both in protection against transfers and in the quality of their implementation, so the fight here can be initiated by any athlete. However, directly on earth, superiority is observed on the side of Bryce – he is more technical and dangerous with his prima. In our opinion, the prospectus will be no worse than your opponent in the rack and will be the best in the stalls.
- Our prediction: Bryce Mitchell Will Win.
