Rose Namajunas: I’ve Been Knowing I’m The ‘Next Ronda Rousey’

Rose Namajunas: I’ve Been Knowing I’m The ‘Next Ronda Rousey’

A few years back, UFC President Dana White said that the next Ronda Rousey was competing on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 20 and he was talking about No. 4-ranked women’s strawweight contender Rose Namajunas.

Unfortunately, Namajunas ended up being submitted by Carla Esparza in the inaugural UFC 115-pound title fight, which served as the show’s finale. Since then, she has won three of four, with her most recent victory coming in the form of an impressive submission win over Michelle Waterson in the co-main event of last weekend’s (April 15, 2017) UFC on FOX 24.

With a title shot potentially looming on the horizon, “Thug” Rose appears to be in peak form and as far she’s concerned, she has always been the next Ronda Rousey:

“I’ve been knowing that,” Namajunas told TMZ about being the successor to Ronda Rousey. “It’s just a matter of whether or not people like me.”

Rousey has obviously experienced quite a fall from grace as of late and it’s unclear whether or not she’ll ever fight again. Either way, she remains as the biggest star in the history of women’s MMA and Namajunas appears to be on her way towards becoming a star as well.

Do you see “Thug” Rose as a future champion?

  • michaelchimique

    no, she’s Rose. she’s not the next anybody. especially not sore loser Ronda Rousey.

  • Dan Stevens

    Is that the type of similarity you want? A short lived, anti climactic career which ended horribly. Did’nt really handle losing too well and treated opponents poorly.

  • Jess Fenchley

    Oh, Rose… the more you speak the more dumb you sound. Just fight.

    • Jason bourne

      Nice work meatcrusher

      • ????????????

        Amen dude!!!!

    • ????????????

      Oh meatcrusher, the more you post the more pathetic you appear.
      Well done douche

  • Wabbit

    Dreams are free…

  • Bill Wolf

    (facepalm) No.

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    Not until you get some hair up top homeboy

    rousy aint pretty, but at least she has the decency to keep some hair up top

  • Bill Wolf

    When you have done something worthy, and people are starting to pay attention to you, and they are inclined to like you…

    This is not the time to brand yourself as an inferior version of a very different, far more successful fighter that a lot of people don’t like much.

    After beating the skilled and attractive Karate Hottie, this was the time for Thug Rose to say: hey world, this is ME!

  • Jason bourne

    12 straight wins and 6 title defences and destroyed all but 2 who were put in front of her. Rose is just another nobody trying to use Ronda’s name for publicity.
    Sad…..

    • Jess Fenchley

      And Jamie Eyeles posts on his other account for support of himself.

      • Jason bourne

        And jessica deletes its other account just to follow me. Isnt that right meatcrusher????
        Pathetic

        • ????????????

          Yep. Thats how jessica aka meatcrusher found out my full name and where I live. So sad how far a deluded twit will go to troll someone.
          Truly tragic

          • Jess Fenchley

            Pathetic, back to watching Lousey’s fictional DVD set for you.

          • ????????????

            Pathetic, back to watching the dvds of my life since you are so in love with me.
            Pathetic…..

          • Jason bourne

            So true bud ????

          • Jason bourne

            Back to wishing you had a life since you are so obsessed with Jamie and I. Not sure whays yhe most satisfying…..watching you self destruct or buster holm become the laughing stock of the world!!!!!!????????????????

          • Spyridon

            Seems like the two of you are more obsessed with Jess than Jess being obsessed with u two… look at all the spam and attention focused towards Jess…

          • Jason bourne

            Really? Seems you are just as clueless. Jess started its account 2 months ago and its first 27 posts were at jamie. Also jess found out his full name and where he lives. If you call that normal behavior then you are just as ignorant.

          • Spyridon

            I don’t call 2 people trolling a single person for multiple page lengths “normal behavior”. If you really didn’t want issues with Jess, you wouldn’t be doing things such as that to get attention.

            Be real, you guys want the attention or else you wouldn’t be posting so much, you two are literally going out of your way to get it.

            And for Jess to find out his real name, either he had to do something stupid and give away personal information he should not have that allowed public records to be found, or he posted something public he should not have.

          • Jason bourne

            Im not surprised youve made alot of excuses to justify jess’s actions and make jamie out to be at fault. Perhaps you are a friend or relative. Either way jamie and I dont give a f–k what you think and will continue to do what we want when we want. If our actions ruffle your feathers, tough…..
            Grow a pair of balls and harden up princess ????????????????

          • ????????????

            Bottom line chief is this toad came after me for NO reason and made a huge effort to find personal info I did not make available. To me thats borderline stalking but it seems you’re ok with that. Maybe you and jess are love nuggets. Either way I will always throw back whats hurled at me. If thats an issue with u then perhaps direct your issues to jess instead of making mass assumptions and appearing as clueless as you appear. An eye for an eye champ and if thats too traumatic for you then go elsewhere. Hanging around crying like you are from your moral high horse makes you no better….

          • ????????????

            Well jess found out my full name and where I lived before I even knew who this clown was. This clown started an account mid feb then launched a tirade of abuse and personal insults at me and my country despite me NEVER conversing with this clown before. Hard to see how that is normal behavior…..
            I guess now I am giving it back in spades and my brother has joined in. The way I look at it is, act like an idiot, get treated like an idiot. Simple really…..

          • Jason bourne

            Yep a true bottom feeder ole’ meatcrusher

      • ????????????

        The demise of your hero buster holm clearly has traumatized you.
        Get help

        • Jess Fenchley

          Holm is still fighting though. Lousey is crying on the couch. ’nuff said.

          • ????????????

            You call what she does fighting???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Jason bourne

            And lost the courtroom battle too for 4 straight losses lol!!!! Just as humiliating as jessica aka meatcrusher deleting accounts 7 times just to troll 1 person….
            Both hilarious!!!!!!????????????

          • Jason bourne

            Buster has retired and is in tears from 3 straight losses across across 2 divisions LMFAO????????????????????????
            ‘Nuff said
            Go hump ya trump doll

          • ????????????

            Buster holm is still fighting (LOL) because she cant do anything else. No books or dvds or docos or acting roles or hosting shows or photo shoots or commercials, etc because buster is a DNB and no one cares about her.
            Buster rejects fighting an unknown “can” from the phillipines and now is fighting the same “can” you idiots mocked RR about LOL!!!!!!!! Gotta love karma :):):)
            I’ll bet anything and everything that buster wont finish it in 34 seconds like Rousey did…In fact buster will be lucky to win at all. Gee I love it when the foolish (you) becomes the fool………
            Congrats 🙂

        • Jason bourne

          There is no help for jessica aka meatcrusher. Doomed to be a pathetic failure for life

      • ????????????

    • Jess Fenchley

      Jamie Eyles, you already said that with your other account. how transparent and truly pathetic. Go hump a kangaroo.

      • Jason bourne

        Seems you really are that ret@rded. Its not hard to fool transparent neanderthals with single digit IQs. Now go delete you account meatcrusher and start another one to follow me.
        Pathetic.
        Go hump your holly blow up doll

        • ????????????

          Well said bro. Being an inbred has really messed with jessica aka meatcrusher lol!!!!!!

          • Jason bourne

            I know right? Just imagine its family???? OMG HORRIFIC……

      • ????????????

        Oh jessica aka meatcrusher. Go delete your account for the 8th time in the last 12 months and start yet another 1 just to troll me. Shows just how brain damaged youve become. A smart person would let go and move on but since you’re mentally handicapped, you’re unable to lol!!!
        Go hump ya trump doll

      • Jason bourne

        Please keep the conspiracy theories coming about multiple accounts. Only a dumbf@ck like you would be dumb enough to think that….
        IDIOT

    • ????????????

      Awesome dude!!!!! Just posting is getting under the skin of jessica aka meatcrusher. Love it bro 🙂

      • Jason bourne

        Its just too easy to rattle its cage. Like a moth to a flame lol

  • ????????????

    How many defences have you made rose? Zero…. How many belts have you held? Zero. Stop using Ronda’s name for publicity and start using your own

    • Jess Fenchley

      yea, listen to Lousey’s simpleminded fan boy, Jamie Eyeles. Has Rose been obliterated and embarrassed for being a marketing creation? No, so Rose cannot be Lousey. Right, Jamie?

      • Jason bourne

        Yeah, listen to buster holms number 1 fan!!!! Worships a overrated has been that has lost 3 straight across 2 divisions and is now drug free thanks to usada. A has been who wouldn’t have a job thanks to Miss 12 and 6 LMFAO!!!!
        YEP buster holm certainly was a marketing creation right meatcrusher????

        • ????????????

          Yep. Every woman in the ufc now has a career thanks to RR.

          • Jason bourne

            Yep buster would still be fighting nuns and cheerleaders if not for Ronda.

          • ????????????

            Damn straight!!!! ????????????

        • ????????????

          Only a dumbazz would worship a drug riddled overrated overhyped paperchamp like buster holm…..????????????????

      • ????????????

        Oh meatcrusher why do you continually embarrass yourself. Your hero is done and you cant deal with it. 3 straight losses and headed for the retirement village. Now delete your account AGAIN and start another one just to follow me.
        Tragic

    • aFriendlyAgenda

      I dont care for the attempt at rousy association either

      • ????????????

        No one cares what you think anyway. Too bad my post is 100% factual. Gather your panties and cry elsewhere child…..

  • Shock Wave

    Ronda is only an example of Stardom.
    As a champion, Rondas competition was pretty damn weak, save Tate and Holm.

    Be a better role model than Ronda.
    “Thug” is still far ahead of Ronda by way of competition, it’s a question of “is she marketable?”
    Hmmm, a bald chick fighter that looks like a dude…

    Good luck with “getting popular”.

  • ????????????

    12 straight wins and 6 title defences and destroyed all but 2 who were put in front of her. Rose is just another nobody trying to use Ronda’s name for publicity.
    Sad.

    • ????????????

      Truth….

    • Jess Fenchley

      And it only took two real fighters to decimate Lousey and expose her as the obvious marketing sham she is. Only simpletons like you, Jamie Eyeles, bought into it. The simpleminded are loved by Dana,

      • ????????????

        It took cans to obliterate your steroid laden hero who has been exposed as the biggest overhyped and overrated woman athlete in history and a laughing stock of womens mma who has lost 3 straight across 2 divisions……Only a clueless simpleton would follow such a loser. Seems you are that stupid that you bought into her hype. The clueless buster followers are mocked worldwide

        • Jason bourne

          Only morons like jessica aka meatcrusher follow fake paperchamps like buster holm
          Tragic

          • aFriendlyAgenda

            I just love the way Holm kind of slaps rousy around,
            pushes her into position at will,
            before the KO

          • Jason bourne

            I just love the way meisha choked out buster holm and had her flinging her arms like a spastic exposing buster as the fake paperchamp smart people always knew. I loved watching shevchenko school holm at an art she is SUPPOSEDLY good at. Seeing buster crying afterwards was even better lol. I loved watching GDR punch 14 different kinds of crap out of buster for her 3rd embarrassing loss. I loved watching holm even lose in the courtroom trying patheticly to overturn a decision knowing full well she cant fight in the octagon. All the world celebrated buster holms’ cataclysmic collapse to obscurity with unparalleled joy ????????????????????????????????????

          • ????????????

            Dream come true ????????????

          • ????????????

            I just love no one knows who holly is anymore lol!!!!!
            Priceless????????????????????????????

          • ????????????

            Truth ????

      • Jason bourne

        It took 2 nobodies to expose buster as the fake paperchamp smart people knew her to be. Youd be dumb enough to think her 17 world boxing title were against legit opponents too!!!!. You’re so clueless its laughable ????????????????

        • ????????????

          Ouch!!!!!!!

      • aFriendlyAgenda

        Lousy was good at the thing she did

        Even floyd mayweather probably couldn’t avoid getting arm-barred by rousy

        But the girls caught up with her

        She was just fast out of the gate

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    I’m telling you, I would force her to grow her hair back on
    Or she would be spending half her game money on wigs

    Pat Berry must be more compashionate then I am
    Or a pervert

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    Lets be honest,
    women can fight
    Thats all they do

    But they cant sport fight,
    because they’re emotional

    Rampage Jackson is an emotional fighter
    He’s capable of beating the best,
    and then just flubbing it all on tuesday

  • ????????????

    How many defences have you made rose? Zero…. How many belts have you held? Zero. Stop using Ronda’s name for publicity and start using your own

  • ????????????

    Yep. Every woman in the ufc now has a career thanks to RR

  • ????????????

    Rose clinging desperately to Ronda’s name for publicity…..Sad
    JJ is 100 times a better fighter and is right there with RR
