Raul Rosas Jr. submits Ricky Turcios with rear-naked choke at UFC Louisville highlights

Bantamweight division upstart, Raul Rosas Jr. is now riding a two-fight winning run for the first time in his Octagon tenure off the back of tonight’s submission win — laying waste to Ricky Turcios with a second round rear-naked choke at UFC Louisville in the pair’s main card clash.

Rosas Jr. — a product of Dana White’s Contender Series, initially made good on his landing in the organization, turning in a dominant submission win over Jay Perrin — before dropping an upset loss to Christian Rodriguez over the course of three rounds in a decision blemish.

And re-matched with Turcios tonight in Kentucky, Rosas Jr. — who has been touted as a significant future talent, was forced to defend a taut rear-naked choke in the first round, before almost locking up his own win in the same frame.
