Beltran vs. Rosa Wiki Update Wiki

The second bout of UFC 131 featured Aaron Rosa taking on Joey Beltran. Rosa was making his UFC debut, while Beltran came in 2-2 in his prior UFC bouts.


Joey Beltran quickly had Rosa pressed up against the fence and began landing some nice short punches on the inside. Beltran landed a nice uppercut and had Rosa stuck. They broke free and engaged in a wild exchange of looping punching, both fighters landing nicely and the crowd roaring in approval. Rosa's face showed more damage but he continued to willingly engage in every exchange. Beltran mixed his strikes up more effectively, including body punches and low kicks, while Rosa stuck to his hands. The round ended with one more insane exchange with no regard for defense, and the fighters slapped hands after the horn.


Aaron Rosa landed a nice two-punch combination shortly after the start of the second round. Beltran came forward with a nice exchange and clinched up against the fence once again. Rosa broke free and had some of his best exchanges of the fight, clearly getting the advantage. Joey Beltran crushed a knee into the groin of Rosa, and then as Rosa was covering up was hit with another knee to the head, unintentionally but clearly hurting Rosa. After a minute for Rosa to recover the fight restarted at the same frenetic pace. Just a moment later, though, Rosa nailed Beltran with a knee to the groin of his own. Beltran came in to clinch up but ate an uppercut on the way. Beltran got the better of the final seconds of another action-packed round.


Rosa came forward with a sloppy takedown attempt in the third and got kneed for it. Rosa connected with a good punch but Beltran put him on his knees and attacked with a flurry that hurt Rosa. Beltran pulled him to the mat, got side control, and unloaded with a series of monster punches that left Rosa defenseless, forcing the referee to jump in and call it off.


The official end came at 1:26 of the third round, declaring the winner by TKO, Joey Beltran.
