UFC on ESPN 53 video: Amanda Ribas, Rose Namajunas have serious final faceoff

LAS VEGAS – Amanda Ribas and Rose Namajunas had respectful but confident demeanours when they crossed paths for the final time ahead of Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 53 main event.

Ribas (12-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) will take on former two-time strawweight champion Namajunas (11-6 MMA, 9-5 UFC) in a women’s flyweight headliner at the UFC Apex (ESPN, ESPN+), and after both athletes made weight on Friday morning, they came together for a staredown in front of the cameras.

Neither women had had anything bad to say about the others in the build-up to the five-round matchup, and that attitude carried over into being all business at the faceoff.

Check out the video above to see the Ribas vs. Namajunas final faceoff before UFC on ESPN 53.
