Seven months after shocking the MMA world with a brutal head kick knockout to claim the UFC women’s strawweight championship, Rose Namajunas will look to duplicate the act in an immediate rematch with the woman she defeated, Weili Zhang, in the co-main event of UFC 268 LIVE.
Namajunas became a two-time champion in April when she stopped Zhang just 78 seconds into their title fight. That came two fights after she lost the title to Jessica Andrade in 2019.
Zhang burst onto the scene and tore through the division before knocking Andrade out in 42 seconds to become champion.
She made a title defense in a fight of the year against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. But then she ran into the head kick heard around the world by Namajunas and finds herself looking to regain the title she lost in surprising fashion.
Considering how quickly their first meeting ended, it’s hard to know what the rematch will be like. It’s a clash of styles as Namajunas is the smooth operator who uses his range and varied strikes to pick his opponents apart, while Zhang opts to overwhelm his opponent with power and aggression. It will be a fight that everyone will want to see that’s why I leave you the information of the schedule, channel and watch LIVE.
