UFC on ESPN 54 winner Caolan Loughran: ‘I feel like a d*ckhead’ calling out Raul Rosas Jr., but it makes sense

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – As a 27-year-old man, Caolan Loughran doesn’t feel completely right calling out a teenager but, hey, that’s the fight game for you.

Loughran got back in the win column Saturday by earning a clean-sweep unanimous decision against Angel Pacheco at UFC on ESPN 54, with one judge awarding him a 30-26. Afterward, Loughran turned his attention to 19-year-old “d*ck lips” Raul Rosas Jr. during his octagon interview.

Backstage at Boardwalk Hall, Loughran (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) expanded on his callout of Rosas (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) with MMA Junkie and other reporters.

I feel like a d*ckhead calling out a 19-year-old lad, but we’re in the same position, same record, let’s do it,” Loughran said.

They don’t exactly have the same record, but they’re close enough.

Loughran, a former Cage Warriors champion, continued his callout by throwing out some possible dates and locations – the expected July event in Manchester, England; the undercard of Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler (whenever that might be); and he’s even willing to face the young Mexican at the Sphere on Mexican Independence Day.

“We can do it (at) the pay-per-view in Manchester, we can do it on the undercard of Mac vs. Chandler, or we can go to the Sphere on Mexican Independence Day and have 15 f*cking million Mexicans boo me. I don’t give a f*ck,” Loughran sad. “We’ve got the same record now. I’m in no position to be calling out ‘Sugar’ (Sean O’Malley) or calling out Merab (Dvalishvili). But that’s a realistic fight.”

As for his early thoughts on the matchup?

“I think I’ll punch his f*cking head,” Loughran said. “He’s dangerous but stupid. Let’s go, Rosas. Let’s go.”
