4. Jessica Andrade vs. Rose Namajunas
Namajunas put on the performance of her life against Andrade. At least, until the Brazilian slammed her on her head. ‘Thug Rose’ was the strawweight champion and demonstrated some beautiful movement and slick striking against her challenger. It looked like she was on a different level to Andrade. However, the Brazilian had a trick up her sleeve.
The finish came about three minutes into the second round. As the pair moved into the clinch, Namajunas took a risk and attempted a flying armbar. Andrade used her opponent’s momentum against her to smash her head-first into the ground. It was a sickening KO as Namajunas’s head bounced off the mat. Andrade became the new champion in savage style.
