Namajunas has to be high on the list after Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha settle things July 8th at the TUF 23 Finale.
I also thought Torres had a good performance although she lost. But she gave up some late takedowns in rounds two and three and although Rose wasn’t able to do much with them, I think they helped sway the judges. Otherwise, it was a close fight.

Namajunas said in the post-fight press conference she’s going to get some R&R after going through her toughest training camp yet.
Raquel Pennington (7-5-0) moved forward with a split-decision win over Bethe Correia. It was good to see her get her hand raised.
It’s the battle of the Jessicas at UFC 199. Jessica Penne (12-3-0) will take on Jessica Andrade (13-5-0). June 4th is the date. I still remember Penne’s heart as she was getting dominated by Joanna Jedrzejczyk. I’m curious to see the improvements in her standup and Andrade, who last lost to Pennington at UFC 191, will be prepared.
Here’s the latest Mackenzie Dern highlight:
See you next week!
