(Sports Spectrum) Rose Namajunas is once again the UFC’s strawweight champion.
In a surprising knockout just 1:18 into the first round, Namajunas pulled off the upset of Zhang Weili in the 115-pound title fight that co-headlined UFC 261 in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday. After the win, Namajunas gave the glory to God.
“I did it again, but God did it, man,” Namajunas said through tears. “I really just had to have faith in Him. That’s what got me through.”
