How did Rose Namajunas look like before she went bald? – Sportskeeda

Rose Namajunas used to sport long blonde locks of hair before she decided to go bald. Namajunas chopped off her hair days before her fight against Paige VanZant, which served as the headliner of UFC Fight Night 80 on December 10, 2015 in Las Vegas.

Rose Namajunas claimed to have traded her long hair for a buzz cut as her longer hair was hindering her practice. Posting a picture of the new hairdo, Rose wrote on Instagram:

The new hairstyle appeared to work well for Rose Namajunas as ‘Thug Rose’ dominated the entire fight and finally sunk in a rear naked choke to earn a submission at 2:25 in the fifth round.
Paige VanZant showed immense heart in surviving eight takedowns and five submission attempts, including several armbars that saw her arm twist and turn in several directions. The fight also snapped VanZant’s four-fight winning streak and put Namajunas on a win-streak of her own.
Rose Namajunas’ fiance at the time, Pat Barry, who was also a former UFC competitor, confirmed her reasons for the haircut. Barry was also upset about the fact Rose’s hairdo was a topic of concern going into her first UFC main event. Pat Barry told MMA Fighting:
Zhang Weili lost her UFC strawweight strap to Rose Namajunas at UFC 261 which also marked the first knockout loss of her MMA career. Weili seems to have taken Rose’s message about short hair seriously as she has chopped off her hair following the defeat. Posting a picture of the new hairstyle, Zhang Weili wrote on Instagram:
