Rose Namajunas undergoes successful nose surgery following UFC 251 win

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.”

  1. Not surprising for the nose – now how about the eye? Is there a broken bone or just a world class hematoma?

    1. Good question ! She’s gonna have to work on her cardio cause she’ll get busted up worse than that against Zhang if she doesn’t.
