Former strawweight champion “Thug” Rose Namajunas has undergone successful nose surgery following her win at UFC 251.
At UFC 251, Namajunas avenged her loss to Jessica Andrade in a “Fight of the Night” war. Namajunas revealed to ESPN that she broke her nose during the fight.
It’s looking like a title opportunity against current champ Weili Zhang may be next for Rose. On Monday, the 28-year-old told Ariel Helwani, “I would love to fight her [Zhang]. Really technical, really strong. That’s something that interests me a lot.”
“Ever since I saw her fight Tecia, I’ve been scouting her out a little bit, and I think it’s just going to be a beautiful display of martial arts. She’s a master, I’m a master. It’s going to be really cool.”
