Rose Namajunas became a two time UFC champion on Saturday when she dethroned Zhang Weili in the UFC 261 co-headliner.

After losing the belt in May 2019, Namajunas (10-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) got her hands on the strawweight strap when she beat Weili (21-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) by first-round knockout in the co-main event, which took place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., and aired on pay-per-view.

Namajunas is now the first fighter to have multiple title reigns at 115 pounds, while Weili sees her 21-fight winning streak come to an end.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Namajunas’ title victory over Weili at UFC 261.
