Ronaldo Rodriguez Discusses Title Hopes Following UFC Debut Win

Oh, boy. Ronaldo Rodriguez, that Mexican flyweight prospect, really kicked off with a bang at UFC Mexico. Can you believe it? His debut was something else, especially with the crowd cheering him on, right in his backyard.

And get this, he was the only newbie among ten Mexican warriors on a 13-fight card. Talk about making an entrance! It’s been a hot minute since UFC graced Mexico with its presence—since 2019, to be exact.

Now, here’s where it gets juicy. Rodriguez found himself in a bit of a pickle early on against Ukraine’s Denys Bondar. But, “Lazy Boy”? He’s not one to stay down for long. Nope. He flipped the script and snagged a submission win, right at the buzzer of Round 2. Talk about a nail-biter!

Post-fight, Rodriguez was all hearts and flowers, throwing thanks left and right to his team. “They saw me as a kid with a lot of future,” he gushed. Makes you wanna root for the guy, doesn’t it?

So, what’s next on his agenda? Well, Rodriguez has his eyes on the prize—champion status. And he’s not just dreaming. “I’m gonna win my next fight and my next fight and my next fight,” he declared. Confidence? Check.

Since 2020, this 24-year-old dynamo hasn’t tasted defeat. With his latest win over Bondar, he’s riding a six-fight winning streak. And get this—12 of his 16 wins didn’t even need the judges’ nod. If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is.
