Jasmine Rocha Wants Rematch With Ffion Davies: “I’m Gonna Be Much More Aggressive”

Jasmine Rocha Wants Rematch With Ffion Davies: “I’m Gonna Be Much More Aggressive”

Jasmine Rocha wants a rematch with Ffion Davies…
And she promises that it will be different this time.

Rocha is one of the world’s top 55kg grappling athletes, and she faced Davies in August 2023 at a WNO match.
Davies ultimately won via decision.

But now, Rocha is looking forward to the possibility of facing her in ADCC and avenging her loss.
Here is what she had to say in an interview with the Grappling Insider:

I think I respected her too much when I fought her at Who’s Number One.

There was obviously a lot of pressure for that fight.
A title fight… Talked my sh*t, but I think it’s gonna be much different.

Rocha plans to step up the intensity:

I’m gonna be much more aggressive.

I also think with the weight class it’s gonna be much different, she’s gonna be a little bit smaller so I think that is also gonna play a big advantage into this.

And it’s also ADCC rules so it’s gonna be very hard for her to be able to score on me.

I think it’s gonna be an amazing fight.
I think everyone is going to want to see that.

For Rocha, it’s all about the mindset:

The mindset of having to win…

Anybody with a last name like mine, probably has that “I have to win” mentality.
I have to go up to that legacy, reach that potential. It’s adding pressure that you don’t need.

So you start to fix little things that you tell yourself.
The having to win – change it to wanting to win.

It totally changes your mindset.
