Rose Namajunas On What Jedrzejczyk Must Do To Earn Third Fight

Namajunas The UFC strawweight champion has given a pretty cheeky response when asked what Joanna Jedrzejczyk would need to earn another rematch.

Rose Namajunas’ well and truly shocked the world when she managed to annihilate the longtime UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in one of the biggest UFC events of all-time in the very first round. And while there were those who called it a fluke, her second victory over the same woman at UFC 223 did wonders at establishing ‘Thug’ Rose’s claim to the throne.

It was a tighter fight, yes. But over the course of the scheduled five rounds, we began to see the development in Rose’s overall game against an opponent who, all things considered, has been the greatest champ in the history of the division.

Two straight wins for Namajunas over that very same fighter, though, makes the notion of a third go at it a pretty stale option at this point.

Speaking to TMZ Sports in a recent interview, Rose broke down exactly what Joanna would have to do in order to be granted a third opportunity.
