When Dana White called Rose Namajunas the Next Ronda Rousey

Rose Namajunas is arguably the best in the history of flyweight division in UFC.

"She's a mean, nasty individual when she competes and she can be the next Ronda Rousey."

She was seen in the 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).

0n the show, UFC president Dana White claimed that the next Ronda Rousey is competing for the women's strawweight champion- he was talking about the Thug Rose.


As far as Thug Rose is concerned, she told in an interview that she has always known she'd be the next Ronda Rousey- "I've been knowing that, its just a matter of whether or not people like me."

When Rousey was asked who could be the UFC president referring to, the former champ made her pick- "I definitely think it's Rose Namajunas. I called it from the very beginning."

Ronda Rousey has left quite a legacy in UFC. She is regarded as one of the pioneers of the mainstream women's MMA. Rousey was also inducted in UFC Hall of Fame in 2018.

What do you make of the comparisons years later? Do you think she has lived up to what White said?
