Rose Namajunas has become the talk of the town as fans express their anticipation for her UFC return. Fans are eagerly waiting to see the former UFC women’s strawweight champion back in the cage and showcase her skills in the octagon once again.
Rose Namajunas’s career in the UFC Women’s Strawweight Division has been remarkable, with ups and downs.
Her journey to the top began in November 2017, when she secured a major upset victory against Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 217 to claim the title. The Denver-based star then successfully defended her title in a rematch against Jędrzejczyk at UFC 223 in April 2018.
After suffering a spinal injury in 2018, Namajunas made a comeback but lost to Jéssica Andrade in 2019. She won a rematch with Andrade in 2020 and regained the title in 2021 with a knockout win over Zhang Weili.
The former champ defended the title in 2021 but lost to Carla Esparza in her last outing back in 2022. Despite setbacks, Rose Namajunas remains a formidable competitor in the Strawweight division.
Some have questioned her willingness to keep competing after lackluster loss to Esparza but she had since tried her hand at competitive grappling against Gilian Robertson and got quickly submitted.
Former UFC champ Rose Namajunas recently visited 10th planet academy in Denver and had a fun role with one of the regulars.
Many fans have been reminiscing about Namajuna’s past achievements as the UFC champion and urging her to regain her title.
One fan’s comment read, “You were the champ and chanted ‘I’m the best’ in one of the best moments in UFC history and then gave up the belt so easily to do what? We all want to see you back in there kickin ass and chanting ‘I’m the Best’ once again because you are- go get your title back for good, that’s yours…don’t give up, we miss you!!!❤️💯. Time to put the thug back in Thug Rose!”
The fan’s comment reflects the overwhelming support for the former women’s strawweight champion and their desire to see her compete at the highest level again.
