UFC 201 Video “The Matchup” With Rose Namajunas-Karolina Kowalkiewicz


A key strawweight contest is set for the UFC 201 co-main event Saturday night, as Rose Namajunas takes on Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Namajunas has scored successive wins over Tecia Torres, Paige VanZant and Angela Hill since a 2014 loss to Carla Esparza in the finals of the tournament to crown the first-ever UFC 115-pound champion. “Thug” finished both VanZant and Hill, while scoring a decision in April over Torres.

Kowalkiewicz made her Octagon debut last December with a decision win over Randa Markos before adding a May decision triumph vs. Heather Jo Clark to her resume.

In this special edition of “The Matchup,” both fighters offer up their thoughts on the other.
