Easy win for Maldonado

Rosa looked pretty chubby last time out at HW and now he's coming back to LHW? Will he be able too?

Looking forward to seeing Fabio fight again though.

First time I saw Maldonado was in his last fight, vs Kingsbury, and I was extremely impressed. Don't get me wrong, I see big holes in Maldonado's game when it comes to early aggression and overall takedown defense, but he's a gamer. Solid boxing, fantastic chin, decent cardio (could be better) and an amiable attitude.

Personally I felt like Kingsbury was fighting to not lose, and that hypothetically as a judge I really wanted to have given the fight to Maldonado but would've likely awarded it to Kingsbury based on the unified rules, but that's just me.

Anyhow, should be a great fight. Rosa went up a tougher, better conditioned guy last time in Joey Beltran. The questions in this fight to me are -

-How will the weight cut affect Rosa? Will his cardio be improved or is he a natural endomorph who performs better with some water weight?

-Who has the better chin? It's hard to say. Maldonado's looked nearly invulnerable to head shots, while Rosa stood for a long long time against a heavyweight in Beltran.

Great matchmaking, looking forward to it.

Maldonadpo by tko in the 2nd. I was surprised Kings bury could take that punishment. A flabby Rosa won'tbe aable to.

I like Maldonado, and thought he won the fight against Kingsbury. I wonder if Joe Silva is hinting that he needs to make the cut to MW, because this is the second huge LHW he will have faced in a row.

If you told me one of these two was drooping a weightless I wouldnt have thought it was Rosa.
