Rose Namajunas gives three possible names for her first challenger as UFC strawweight champion
Joanna Jedrzejczyk was on her way to becoming the most dominant female fighter in the world today, until she ran into Rose Namajunas at UFC 217 last November in New York City.
“Joanna, she was like the most dominant female, she was on her way to becoming bigger than Ronda in terms of her accomplishments,” Namajunas said (via MMA Fighting). “So to me, it’s just a testament to how great she was and the fact that I beat her, that’s just awesome.”
“I don’t think that people were necessarily sleeping on me, I just think that she was definitely very impressive.”
“For me, who is the scariest person that I could fight, I think that would be cool,” “To me, what sticks out as of right now is Jessica Andrade, but at the same time a rematch with Joanna would be great too. I don’t know. The three options right now would be Joanna, or the winner of Jessica Andrade vs. Tecia Torres.”
