‘Better dead than red’ – Namajunas wants to beat Zhang for ‘what she represents’

Zhang Weili is scheduled to defend her UFC strawweight title versus former champion Rose Namajunas this month in the sold out Jacksonville Arena in Florida for UFC 261. Ahead of the fight Namajunas spoke to Lithuanian outlet LRT.

With that outlet Namajunas expressed that she is motivated to fight Zhang, who is Chinese, because of Lithuania’s history of oppression under the Soviet Union. In her interview Namajunas used the slogan “better dead than red” when describing her mindset heading into the fight with Zhang, who she also called “red”.
