The fates dealt us a cruel hand when they kicked Tony Ferguson and Lyoto Machida to the curb instead of allowing them to compete on the UFC on FOX 19 card. But all the shuffling now has Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres in the co-main event slot, and that’s pretty alright if you ask me.
When she’s not covered in the blood of her foes, Namajunas is cute as a button – someone you’d totally let babysit your kids. And yet she’s an absolute killer in the cage. Did you see what she did to Paige VanZant?
Sure, it sucks that Khabib Nurmagomedov is no longer main eventing opposite Ferguson, and that Machida felt the need to take “super” pills. But as a result, Namajunas gets the spotlight. She deserves it.
