Paige VanZant was supposed to be the next big thing.
“12 Gauge” was able to bypass The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 proving ground (because of this) and quickly rose to superstardom, because of the “it” factor. One that led to her own main event, as well as a private sponsorship with the gang at Reebok.
I guess Rose Namajunas didn’t get the memo.
“Thug” was looking to get back into the 115-pound title picture after coming up short against Carla Esparza in the TUF 20 live finale. A rebound victory against Angela Hill got her back into the win column, which eventually led to her VanZant headliner at UFC Fight Night 80.
As you can see from the embedded video above, it was a massacre.
Namajunas returns to action against the undefeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the UFC 201 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia (more on that fight here).
