Rose Namajunas continued to display her slick striking when she challenged powerhouse Zhang Weili for the title. Namajunas faced then strawweight champion Weili at UFC 261 in April and she was able to rise to the occasion once again by shining in spectacular fashion. Weili opened up with a few leg kicks, while Namajunas stayed long. But just over a minute in, Namajunas whipped up a left high kick out of nowhere which took the champion out. Namajunas (10-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) recaptured her title and will engage in her third-straight rematch on Nov.
