Days ago, Namajunas had said, ‘I’ve been watching Weili Ever since I saw her fight Tecia Torres a while ago, I started to have my eye on her. Especially since she became a champion, I’ve been exploring and analyzing her, planning the game for her because yeah, she has the belt, that’s really what you have to get out of. I think I forgot some things. Not only, I no longer felt grateful for everything. There is one thing you need to know to be thankful.
And then there’s something else you need to know to be really grateful for what you have and things like that. That’s probably the biggest change and then from there I started to lose myself a bit. I started to realize, I’d say the biggest change was just not being thankful for things. I think it was good to realize that I need to be in control of myself, “she said. Rose.
The fight was in doubt
For her part, Dana White had acknowledged: ‘What I’m hearing is that Rose He doesn’t want a title shot. Rose doesn’t want to fight for a title. I don’t think she would like the pressure of being a champion. She doesn’t want to fight for the title. So we’ll see how it all plays out. If you look at the classification and how it plays out, it would be Weili against Carla Esparza ».

The only doubt is his last fight, I don’t know if everyone knows all the details of everything that happened. But for her even getting to that fight was trails and trails just to get there.
