I respect all fighters and all countries. This is really impressive to me.
«I want to start building different Mixed Martial Arts gyms in the world. I know I am the best and I took back what was mine. I’m sure I’ll defend it against anyone. Now I just want to enjoy it and have it with me and my family, “concluded Rose. Without a doubt, the extraordinary American fighter surprised the MMA world with this spectacular knockout.
