Update On Thunder Rosa MMA Status

Thunder Rosa has revealed whether or not she plans to continue fighting in an update about her MMA career.

Not only has Thunder Rosa made a name for herself in the pro-wrestling world, Rosa has been competed in MMA bouts too.

Speaking with Taylor Wilde during Wilde On, Rosa recalled her 2019 fight against Nadine Mandiau at Combate Americas: San Antonio. Noting that the pandemic prevented her from fighting, Rosa stated that she chose to focus on wrestling.

Discussing the hardships many fighters face, Rosa said:

“I had a fight in 2019 and was scheduled to have three more fights but COVID happened. With my wrestling career on the rise, I have to make a decision if I want to keep fighting or if I want to focus 100% on wrestling. I have to be honest with myself in the decision. I’m not going to stop training MMA. That’s one thing that has created an edge and is different from a lot of the girls in the circuit, so I will not stop training MMA.

“Just in case I decided to say, ‘before I sign with anyone, I want another fight,’ I’m still conditioning and ready to go. Financially, it’s very hard,” she said. “In MMA, the big companies, you can get between 10K and more plus sponsorships. Other than that, a lot of guys and girls I know have full-time jobs and then do MMA. It’s a hard life. You have to take into consideration training and paying for your camp, strength and conditioning, food, physical therapy, all this stuff that adds up.”

At NWA: When Our Shadows Fall, Thunder Rosa teamed with Melina to wrestle Taryn Terrell and Kylie Rae. Shortly after the event it was reported that Kylie Rae had  signed with NWA.
