What a hook:

Rose Namajunas spoke to Joe Rogan in post-fight speech:

“I’m sorry I wasn’t as technical this time, but it was still good – I pulled through,” Namajunas told Joe Rogan afterward. “She was right – that weight cut kind of did mess her up the first time. But I’m just better, man. I feel like I could’ve been lighter on my feet this time, but I’ve got Pat Barry, the best low-kicker in the game, kicking me all the time.”

Namajunas, 25-year-old from Denver improved to 8-3 and has won three in a row and six of seven. Jedrzejczyk dropped to 14-2.

And still the champion:
