UFC free fight: Rose Namajunas avenges KO loss to Jessica Andrade in Fight of the Night

Rose Namajunas stepped up big in her rematch with Jessica Andrade.

In July 2020 at UFC 251, Namajunas avenged arguably her biggest career defeat but when she put on a technical performance in a fun Fight of the Night bout against Andrade. Namajunas was viciously knocked out by the Brazilian to lose her UFC women’s strawweight title the year prior, but out-struck Andrade over the course of 15 minutes and survived some tough moments to win a split decision.

You can watch Namajunas’ win over Andrade in their rematch in the video above.

Namajunas (11-6 MMA, 9-5 UFC) returns to the cage Saturday in the main event of UFC on ESPN 53 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. She takes on Amanda Ribas (12-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) in a five-round, women’s flyweight bout.
