Few fighters, if any, have made waves at the start of their careers as sweeping and powerful as Raul Rosas Jr. <br>Fans love a freakishly talented youngster in any sport, but in the hard school of MMA it generally takes a while to reach the big show. <br>Not so for Rosas Jr. He created such an impression on 's Contender Series reality show that the UFC president signed him up - only after sponsors and his parents granted special permission due to him being 17. <br> <br /> Any doubts about whether the teenager was ready to compete with men far older and more experienced were quickly banished on his debut last December, when he obliterated Jay Perrin with a first-round submission to earn a life-changing $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus. <br>He's back in action this Saturday at UFC 287, already elevated to the first fight slot on a the main card of a huge event. <br> (image: ) Raul Rosas Jr (left) became the youngest fighter to win in the UFC at 18 last year <br> (image: ) UFC boss Dana White was very impressed with 'El Nino Problema' and signed him up early<br>So have his friends and family been lavishing the same adoration on his as fans or does his still have to do the dishes at home? <br>'Nah, they all treat me the same in the house!', he exclusively told Sportsmail. <br>'All my friends and family are proud and they know this is just the beginning. There's not much to celebrate now, this is the road to gold and we're chasing that belt. <br>'I've noticed a lot more people recognise me and stop me in the street and I have been motivating a lot of people, it's really cool to see some people are motivated and started to train, seeing me do what I do at a young age motivated them.'<br>You might think the bright lights and cameras would intimidate a teenager but Rosas Jr looked right at home with a mic in his hand in the octagon last year. <br>He yelled that he wanted to use his $50,000 to buy a minivan so his mum could drive him to the UFC's Performance Institute to train. <br>'I haven't got that minivan yet, we're working on it,' he now explains. 'The money came in a little late but at least I've been able to spend more time with family, I did buy a few clothes. I've not spent much yet because I want to get something for my mum, I'm working on that.'<br>Legend has it that Tiger Woods started taking an interest in golf at six months old, watching his dad swing a club. <br>Rosas Jr wasn't quite lacing up the gloves in infancy but had his first MMA fight at eight-years-old, you read that correctly, with the only rule difference being 'no head shots'. <br> (image: ) On his debut, Rosas beat Perrin by submitting him at 2:44 of the first with a rear naked choke<br>slot gacor gampang menang</a>
