On July 13, 2013 in just her third fight, Rose Namajunas lost to Tecia Torres via Unanimous Decision at Invicta FC 6: Coenen vs. Cyborg. Namajunas won the rematch, again via Unanimous Decision, in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 19 on April 16, 2016.

Now there is a report that there will be a trilogy fight, for Namajunas’ UFC women’s strawweight belt at UFC 221.

UFC 221: Whittaker vs. Rockhold will be held on February 11, 2018 at Perth Arena in Perth, Western Australia.

If confirmed, this will be the first defense of the belt Namajunas won in her performance of the night winning TKO of Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 217 November 4, 2017. Torres is on a three-fight win streak, over Bec Rawlings, Juliana Lima, and most recently Michelle Waterson. Her last loss was to Torres.
