UFC Fight Night 80 Results – Rose Namajunas Dominates & Finishes Paige VanZant In Bloody War

UFC Fight Night 80: Namajunas vs. VanZant, the first of three sold out events in a row in Las Vegas, took place on Thursday, December 10, 2015 at The Chelsea At The Cosmopolitan featuring an amazing UFC Women’s Strawweight contenders bout in the main event between Rose Namajunas (#3) and Paige VanZant (#7).

Following the brutal Holly Holm beatdown of Ronda Rousey in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight division in the last UFC pay-per-view, UFC 193, Rose Namajunas and Paige VanZant managed to put on an epic thriller of their own, one that features the latest finish in UFC Strawweight history.

From the very beginning it didn’t take long for Namajunas to establish control of the action with takedowns and brutal elbows that badly busted open the pretty face of VanZant, but to her absolute credit, PVZ proved once again that she is not just a pretty face. Not at all.

Early in the fight, when VanZant was opened up even more by some tough shots from Rose, the TUF finalist hopped on VanZant’s back and sunk in a deep choke, one that looked to be a fight finisher, but VanZant managed to survive.

It was just one of many jaw-dropping moments in the fight, and VanZant would continue to display her heart and courage throughout the remainder of the bout, including getting out of a deep, deep armbar attempt from Namajunas before succumbing to another tight choke at the 2:25 mark of the fifth and final round.
