Rose Namajunas has Responded to Conor McGregor’s Instagram Apology… She’s Not Impressed…
UFC flyweight champion Rose Namajunas has become one of the most popular fighters in the company. What you see is exactly what you get with the Colorado native, who just successfully defended her title against the woman with the hardest name to spell in MMA, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
She’s been highly praised by the likes of UFC commentator Joe Rogan for being real and encouraging positive values. Namajunas has suffered from mental illnesses in the past and overcome a lot of adversity, so it’s great to have one champion that doesn’t talk crap about every fighter in the division.
‘Thug Rose’ has revealed how she responded to Conor McGregor after he slid into her dm’s to apologize for almost skulling her with a dolly, in the run-up to UFC 223. Let’s just say, she wasn’t very impressed. Not at all.
Namajunas is one of the most distinctive fighters on the women’s roster. As Joe Rogan put it, she looks like Eleven from Stranger Things, but she’s quietly established herself as a devastating and versatile fighter. MMA broadcaster Ike Feldman has revealed how Namajunas responded to McGregor’s apology. His tweet said:
“The man, the myth, the legend Pat Barry (@HypeOrDie) said that #ConorMcGregor DM’d #UFC champion Rose Namajunas following the bus incident (>>) trying to “apologize” … Rose’s response to Conor was simply “F*CK YOU!”#LoveIt #Beast #Denver #UFC223”
Well, he did almost smash her head in and cause her a career-ending injury. Can you blame her?
‘Thug Rose’ wants us all to be better people. Like a number of fighters in the UFC, she’s sick and tired of all the negativity and people being fake and aggressive to try and promote themselves. I’m not going to name names, *cough, Colby Covington, cough*, but you can see where she is coming from. She told Newsday:
“Fighting causes you to face life head-on because you could end up seriously getting hurt, and you could hurt somebody else. It causes both people to face the reality that we are fragile beings, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves in the process and punch each other in the face and have a good time.”
That’s pretty well put.
Meanwhile, Namajunas is preparing for her next fight. It’s likely to be against Jessica Andrade. The Brazilian is seen to be a nightmare match-up for the Colorado fighter, but Namajunas was meant to be destroyed twice by Joanna Champion, so you’d be brave to bet against her.
Conor McGregor probably won’t feel too bad that Namajunas has told him where to go. He’s currently with his family – according to his Instagram at least, as he sorts out his legal troubles and works towards a fight with Khabib Nurmagamedov. He’s due back in court on June 14, in New York. Expect business to move quickly after the judge’s verdict.
