OHHHH MYYYY GOOODDDDDD!!! THUG ROSE!!!! THUG ROSE!!!! THUG ROSE!!!!
She fuckin did it again! Rose Namajunas just became the UFC Strawweight Champion for the second time in her UFC career, marking the first time a female has EVER lost and regained a title! She did it in INCREDIBLE fashion, with a perfect head kick as well. Kicks don't get more perfect than that one.
Weili Zhang was upset with the stoppage, but I think she was the only one. You stop intelligently defending yourself, it doesn't matter if you're kinda sorta conscious - the fight's over.
Rose was weeping as the championship was strapped around her waist, and even had Joe Rogan getting teary eyed in the octagon post-fight....
After Rose Namajunas lost the UFC Strawweight Championship to Jessica Andrade, she said part of her was relieved - it seemed the pressure of being on top of the mountain was getting to her. She then went back to the drawing board, though, got where she needed to be, and climbed all the way back to the pinnacle - incredibly inspiring story.
Hopefully she's more than prepared to handle that pressure now.
