Dana White Thinks Rose Namajunas Is Ready For A Strawweight Title Shot

Rose Namajunas put on one hell of a performance at UFC on FOX 24 from Kansas City, Missouri, defeating the highly regarded Michelle ‘The Karate Hottie’ Waterson via rear naked choke in the second round. Many thought this fight would determine the next opponent for dominant women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk after she defends her belt against Jessica Andrade at UFC 211, and Namajunas let it be known following her win that she wanted whoever walked away from that fight in May.

“I feel like I can go all the way to the belt, and hold it for a while,” Namajunas said during her victory interview. “So Joanna or whoever’s gonna win that fight, I’m coming for you. Be careful!”

You can consider UFC president Dana White on board with that idea.
