Rose Namajunas only interested in Carla Esparza rematch

UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas believes there’s only one fight that really makes sense for her.

The 29-year-old American is on a three fight winning streak. “Thug Rose” defeated Weili Zhang two times in a row and now according to her, there’s another rematch she wants to.

Rose made her UFC debut back in 2014 against Carla Esparza. The fight was for he inaugural strawweight belt and Carla took the W via submission in the third round.

The two ladies never met in a rematch and now, seven years later, Rose wants her revenge.

“I don’t see anything else that makes sense,” Namajunas said on Monday.

“I think she’s going to give it all she’s got,” Namajunas said. “Before I said Weili is for sure the most dangerous threat right now, just because of the tools that she possessed. Now, after that, Carla’s for sure going to be the most dangerous opponent right this second because of where she’s at, her last performance and all this stuff, and she’s going to be very motivated to try – she’s fought for a long time.

“I would imagine that she’s going to be pretty motivated for this huge opportunity. So that is something that really excites me and interests me more now than it was before.”
