Rose Namajunas vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz slated for UFC 201 in Atlanta
Dynamic third-ranked strawweight Rose Namajunas will look for her fourth straight win when she takes on undefeated sixth-ranked fighter Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 201 in Atlanta.
The UFC confirmed the news of the exciting strawweight tilt Monday, an exceptional addition to the July 30 fight card.
Namajunas ran her way through the competition during her season of The Ultimate Fighter, but fell to Carla Esparza in their title fight at the finale. Since then, however Namajunas has been on an absolute tear, winning three straight, including two by submission.
Her opponent, Kowalkiewicz touts a perfect 9-0 record and has won both her fights under the UFC banner against Namajunas' TUF 20 castmates, Randa Markos and Heather Jo Clark.
A win could propel either fighter into the strawweight title picture.
UFC 201 is headlined by the welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley.
