“Thug” Rose Gets Emotional, Cries During Pre-Fight Media Scrum

UFC strawweight title challenger “Thug” Rose Namajunas is quickly becoming a fan favorite, and she’s doing so with zero trash-talk, and really, hardly any talk at all.

It’s her lack of doing so that is making fight fans flood in by the thousands to see how she reacts next.

She’s quickly becoming an enigma the likes of a Nick Diaz, and it’s fascinating to watch.

Taking to her pre-fight media scrum, the emotional and soft spoken female wrecking machine shed a quick tear in front of cameras and reporters, when asked about her dog of all things.

It’s a great look at Saturday’s UFC 217 title challenger.

This year’s return trip to Madison Square Garden is proof the UFC can still deliver a stacked mega-card, with all the bells and whistles.

Set to headline this massive MSG card, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre returns to the Octagon for the first time in over four years. He will face off against the UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping in the UFC 217 main event, on pay-per-view.

Also on the night’s fight card is a long-awaited title fight between ex-teammates Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw. And a big strawweight title fight between Joanna Jedrzerjczyk And “Thug” Rose Namajunas.
