Rose Namajunas : I am super ready


Speaking on her YouTube channel, Namajunas addressed the “confusion” surrounding her next fight, tacitly rejecting White’s claim.

“I don’t know if you follow stuff that’s out there in the MMA news, but apparently there’s some confusion going on about my next fight and whatever,” Namajunas said. “So I don’t know. I’m not worried about any of that. I’m just ready to fight. So I don’t know what’s going on, but I know that you guys are ready for me to fight, too.”

While not an outright refutation of White, it does seem clear there is a disconnect between what White has said and what Namajunas wants. But White didn’t just claim that Namajunas didn’t want the fight, he claimed the former strawweight champion wasn’t interested in being champion again because of the pressure involved, something Namajunas rejected completely.

“Maybe there’s a misconception out there that, whatever, I’m weak-minded or whatever or, ‘I can’t handle the pressures of being champion,’ or whatever the f*ck people say,” Namajunas said. “That’s not true. That’s what I live for. I’m the pressure cooker. What better reason to remind me why I fight than a family member passing away. So I am super ready for all of that because that’s what I am fighting for.”
