Rose Namajunas lost by choke in 65 seconds

Former UFC flyweight champion Rose Namajunas ended the year in a devastating defeat, losing ahead of schedule to the representative of the flyweight division Gillian Robertson in a grappling match at the FURY Pro Grappling 6 tournament held in Philadelphia.

Of the ten minutes allotted for the fight, the representative of Canada needed only 65 seconds to transfer the American, take her back, and choke her from behind.

27-year-old Gillian Robertson has been in the UFC since 2017, and during this time she managed to spend thirteen fights in the organization, scoring eight wins and suffering five losses. The last time Robertson entered the octagon was in September of this year, finishing with a rear naked choke Maria Agapova.

30-year-old Rose Namajunas lost the UFC championship belt again in May, losing in a five-round split decision to Carla Esparza. Prior to this, Namajunas won three victories in a row, including twice defeating Weili Zhang of China, who is currently the reigning champion of the UFC’s first flyweight division.
