Rose Namajunas spent just 12 seconds fighting at Invicta on Friday. After months of preparation for her bout with Kathina Catron, Namajunas hit a flying armbar and won by submission in just 12 seconds. The fight starts right around the one-minute mark, but it's worth watching the entire, moving video.
See as she prepares to walk out with the help of her boyfriend, UFC heavyweight Pat Barry. See the entire fight, because it is just 12 seconds long. See how she breaks down in tears as her arm is being raised and the emotion of her accomplishment hit her. See Barry show some athleticism, too, as he flies onto the side of the cage to congratulate his girl.
Fighting at straw weight (115 lbs.), Namajunas won four amateur fights before winning her first pro bout in January. She is now 2-0, and clearly is an exciting fighter to keep an eye on.
