Rose Namajunas Wiki Update Wiki

Rose began her MMA career in 2010 going undefeated at 4-0 with two first-round knockouts and two decisions. She is also engaged to former UFC heavyweight and K1 competitor, Pat Barry.


She made her pro debut in 2013 at Invicta FC 4. She defeated Emily Kagan via third round submission (RNC) which earned her submission of the night. In her sophomore effort at Invicta FC 5, she pulled off a flying arm bar on Kathina Catron just 12 seconds into the bout. She was awarded another submission of the night bonus. Namajunas suffered her first pro defeat at the hands of Tecia Torres at Invicta FC 6 via decision. Following the loss she would be invited along with several other straw weights from Invicta FC's roster to compete in season 20 of the Ultimate Fighter to crown the first UFC strawweight champion. 


Earning a spot in the finals, Namajunas will face former Invicta FC straw weight champion Carla Esparza to crown the inaugural UFC straw weight champion. Despite a back and forth 1st round, Namajunas would be dominated in rounds 2 and 3 in route to a 3rd round rear naked choke loss. 


Namajunas was expected to face Nina Ansaroff, at UFC 187, however Ansaroff team and doctor's would not allow Ansaroff to fight due to her dealing with a flu-like illness.
