The return of “Thug” Rose Namajunas is a point of pride for many a UFC fan following her year-plus absence from the octagon, with few better fixtures to return in than a rematch against Jessica Andrade.
It was Andrade who slammed Namajunas unconscious to take her UFC women’s strawweight belt in May 2019 but having since lost the title Zhang Weili, who likely lies in wait for the winner of this bout.
Namajunas vs. Andrade Winner Prediction: Namajunas via decision
Despite that result, Andrade comes in a +175 (2.75) underdog to repeat her win over Thug Rose, which looks less likely after her four-win momentum was lost against hard-hitting Weili.
Namajunas may be the inferior Brazilian jiu-jitsu disciple on paper—she owns a brown belt compared to Andrade’s black—but her striking and boxing has proved to be among the best in the strawweight division.
Expect the -200 (1.50) favorite to capitalise on a three-inch reach advantage and utilise a year’s worth of motivation when she makes a much-anticipated return to the cage Saturday.
