Raul Rosas Jr. wants UFC to sign undefeated brother Jessie Rosas: ‘He’s knocking on the door’

Raul Rosas Jr. wants to see his big brother get a UFC contract, and he believes that’s coming soon.

Raul (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is confident that his brother, Jessie Rosas, will join the UFC roster in 2024. Jessie (5-0 MMA), who fights at bantamweight like Raul, is undefeated and just this year alone has logged three first-round submission wins, making him an enticing prospect.

“Yeah, I think he’s knocking on the door (of the UFC), and it’s just about waiting to see what happens,” Rosas told MMA Junkie in Spanish. “We’re hoping it happens as soon as possible, but until then we’re just focused on improving and continue fighting until it happens, but I think it’s going to happen very soon.”

Jessie trains alongside Raul in Las Vegas, and they both live in the same household with their parents. Jessie is 21, two years older than Raul, who’s currently the youngest fighter on the UFC roster.

Raul dreams of one day sharing a UFC card with his brother, and he would like to think that’s in store for 2024.

“That would be sick to be able to share a card together this year,” Raul said. “That would be incredible because we both put on a great show, and we’ll light up the arena when that moment comes.”
