Raul Rosas Jr. is by far the youngest fighter ever to compete in the UFC and he is also the youngest fighter to win a UFC fight, and if his predictions come true, the youngest UFC champion ever.

Raul Rosas stunned spectators and competitors alike at UFC 282 in Las Vegas this past Saturday with a commanding first-round submission victory over Jay Perrin to wrap up the preliminary card for the evening. Raul Rosas’ victory came just two months after turning 18 and three months after he was given a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series while still a teenager.

Raul Rosas says he can stop Aljamain Sterling

Following his triumphant debut, Raul Rosas made an appearance on The MMA Hour and declared himself the top contender in the bantamweight division, even going so far as to assert that he was currently capable of defeating UFC champion Aljamain Sterling via stoppage.

I don’t know what the plan is, but I hope they’re trying to fast track me because I’m ready,” Rosas said. “Like I said, if they offer me a fight for the UFC belt right now, I can not only go out there and win, but I can also finish whoever has the belt, which right now is Aljamain Sterling.

That’s why my pro career, that’s what I’m saying, I didn’t take it slowly. I fought months back to back so I could be here. But if I knew that I wasn’t on the level, if I didn’t have nothing to offer to the table, I would have fought every four months, that way I could improve. The reason I’m fighting so actively — including the Dana White Contender Series not that long ago — I decided to make my UFC debut already because I’m ready for it all. If I knew I wasn’t on that level and I couldn’t hang with these fools — I’m not even looking at anybody, all I see is gold. If I know that I can’t be champion, I would slow down a little bit, but I know I can be champion right now if I was to fight for the belt right now. This is why I’m taking my career so quick, because I know I have everything to win that belt right now.” Rosas said. (Quotes by MMAFighting.com)
