UFC on FOX 19 co-main eventers Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres already have some history between them. “The Tiny Tornado” defeated “Thug” Rose via UD at Invicta FC 6 a few years back but both fighters have only gotten better since then.

Namajunas will come into this on a red-hot two fight win streak with both of those wins coming via impressive rear naked choke finishes. The first was of the standing variety in the 1st round against a fresh Angela Hill while the second was of the gory variety against a warrior in Paige VanZant who somehow endured over 22 minutes of one way traffic in the form of fists, knees and unrelenting submission attempts from Namajunas. This all came after losing a title bout to Carla Esparza to crown the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion – an experience that has made Namajunas much more well-rounded.

Torres, who suffered not one but two exhibition losses on season 20 of TUF, has yet to experience a loss in professional competition. She’ll look to improve her record to 8-0 when she takes on Namajunas in a bout that could easily steal the show on Saturday night. Joe Rogan will have one of the best seats in the house for this pivotal women’s strawweight scrap and his preview of this particular bout is all yours in video form below.
