Although Erosa has had his ups and downs inside the octagon, he continues to prove to be a durable and skilled talent. He was knocked down by Jourdain in the second round, only to come back in the third and finish the fight.
“Jourdain’s a strong striker and I wanted to get the fight to the ground earlier,” Erosa said in his post-fight interview with Michael Bisping. “My D’Arce is unstoppable. … I’m super happy with it.”
