To be honest Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres should have always been the co-main event of UFC on Fox 19. Torres is a perfect 7-0 in her MMA career and Namajunas is fresh off mauling Paige VanZant. Plus, Namajunas vs. Torres is a grudge/rematch off an old school Invicta scrap
After Lyoto Machida pulled the ripcord on his bout with Dan Henderson, the UFC slid Namajunas and Torres into the co-main event spot of UFC Fight Night Tampa /UFC Fight Night Teixeira vs. Evans /UFC on Fox 19. To celebrate the strawweights getting prime position on the card, Torres put on a bikini and ran on the beach in slow motion? Yup, this is a real thing that happened.
