Former two-time women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas headlined Saturday’s UFC Vegas 89 event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas against eighth-ranked Amanda Ribas.  

Namajunas came into the fight after two consecutive losses, and was looking for her first victory in her new weight category.  She won unanimously.  Following the fight, Namajunas was interviewed by fighter-turned broadcaster Paul Felder inside the octagon.  

Namajunas commented after the fight, “It feels good to raise your hand.”  Namajunas’s debut will be in the Top 10 of the 125-pound rankings with the victory.

Manon Fiorot, ranked third at flyweight, was her opponent in September last year.  She lost by unanimous decision, but she learned how to succeed in the new weight category.  

She’d love to fight Fiorot or one of the other top-ranked fighters next.
