Dalton Rosta talks Bellator 289 win and plans for 2023

Dalton Rosta ended 2022 with another great performance at Bellator 289.

In his matchup with Anthony Adams, Rosta had a major power advantage and Adams didn’t want any part of it.

Through the course of their 15-minute fight, Adams was constantly moving backwards, and he would hardly ever throw combinations at Rosta.

While Rosta admits that it was a difficult fight to really showcase his skill, he is still happy that he was able to walk away with a unanimous decision win in which he won every single round of the fight.

The win makes Rosta 8-0 as a professional and it also made him a perfect 3-0 in 2022.

Now that Rosta has made a impact on Bellator’s middleweight division, he’s looking to make a major splash in 2023.

In the short future, Rosta has a few injuries that he wants to heal up, but that isn’t going to take very long.

As far as his new year goals, he wants to fight at least three times and he wants to main event a show in his home city of Pittsburgh.

Following his Bellator 289 win, Rosta once again spoke with MyMMANews to discuss his performance, his plans for 2023 and recently getting a new French Bulldog.
