UFC adds Charles Rosa vs. Darrick Minner to Feb. 20 UFC Fight Night

A featherweight fight is the most recent addition to the UFC’s Feb. 20 UFC Fight Night card.

Both Massachusetts’ Charles Rosa and Nebraska’s Darrick Minner will look to turn standalone victories into winning streaks at the event, which doesn’t currently have an official location or venue.

Multiple people with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. MMA Island was the first to report the news Friday.

Rosa (13-4 MMA, 4-4 UFC) bounced back from a lopsided loss to Bryce Mitchell, when he defeated Kevin Aguilar by split decision at UFC on ESPN 10 in June. Rosa is 2-1 since returning from a 30-month layoff due to a neck injury.

Minner (25-11 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has long been known for his fight-ending chokes. In September, Minner showed that for the first time during his UFC tenure when he made quick work of heavy favorite T.J. Laramie. Minner submitted Laramie 52 seconds into Round 1.

With the addition, the UFC Fight Night card for Feb. 20 includes:

  • Chris Daukaus vs. Aleksei Oleinik
  • Jai Herbert vs. Drakkar Klose
  • Danny Chavez vs. Jared Gordon
  • Shana Dobson vs. Casey O’Neill
  • John Castaneda vs. Eddie Wineland
  • Yana Kunitskaya vs. Ketlen Vieira
  • Jamall Emmers vs. Chas Skelly
  • Darrick Minner vs. Charles Rosa
