On Thursday, Dec. 10, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 80: Namajunas vs. VanZant from the The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, former strawweight title challenger and The Ultimate Fighter 20 finalist Rose Namajunas clashed with the surging Paige VanZant. The 23-year-old Namajunas rebounded from her title defeat to Carla Esparza by demolishing her TUF castmate Angela Hill via first-round submission at UFC 192. The win moved Namajunas to 3-2, with all three wins coming by way of tapout. Meanwhile, Team Alpha Male’s VanZant had picked up three straight wins inside the Octagon since coming over from Invicta FC at the same time as the TUF 20 cast. She most recently submitted Australia’s Alex Chambers at UFC 191 in September to move her record to 6-1.
The 12-fight event kicked off Thursday with eight preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6:45 p.m. ET. The four-fight main card took place at 10 p.m. ET, also on UFC Fight Pass.
