In one of three title fights at UFC 217 on pay-per-view (PPV), Joanna Jędrzejczyk attempted to defend her title against Rose Namajunas.

Jędrzejczyk came into the fight undefeated in her mixed martial arts (MMA) career; 14-0 over top names such as Carla Esparza, Claudia Gadelha, Jessica Penne, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, and Jessica Andrade. “Joanna Champion” only needed to defeat Namajunas to have essentially downed all worthy challengers in the division.

Namajunas was riding the momentum of a great victory ver “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson. Prior to that she had a three-fight win streak snapped after dropping a split decision to Karolina Kowalkiewicz. The 25-year-old was looking to play spoiler to the Polish champ’s title reign with a huge upset win.

“Thug” did just that, as she handled Jędrzejczyk extremely well before landing a huge shot that knocked the champ down to the mat. Namajunas unleashed a barrage of ground-and-pound before Jędrzejczyk submitted to the strikes and lost the first fight of her career.

Namajunas is now the third-ever champion in the UFC’s strawweight division and pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the year. You can check out the full fight video highlights here:
