When associating the 135-pound women's bantamweight division with Brazil, it's understandable for the first thought to be reigning champion and all-time great, Amanda Nunes. However, after her most recent performance, Karol Rosa continuously proves that she's a contender to watch out for.

Hailing from Vila Velha in Espirito Santo, the now 14-3 Rosa extended her current winning streak to five-straight at UFC Vegas 18. By defeating Panama's Joselyne Edwards in a lopsided decision, Rosa obtained her third UFC victory in just as many years.

"It's a great feeling," Rosa told MyMMANews of her snowballing momentum. "I always fight to win so it was great getting to come back home with a victory and being able to share that with all the people that I love. My coach's goal was that I'd begin this year with a victory so that was the first goal that we already achieved and I'm excited to achieve all the following goals this year.

"I train so much so definitely it was a great feeling. When the fights were canceled I didn't stop training so it was very gratifying to finally be able to fight and get the win."
