Betting on Rose Namajunas
Looking at the stats from the first time Namajunas faced Andrade. Thug Rose had the clear advantage and was out striking Andrade landing 55 of 125, compared to Andrade’s 47 of 105 significant strikes landed.
It was clear that Namajunas skill set has evolved from the first Joanna bout to the rematch. One area she doesn’t excel at is being bullied and Andrade capitalized on Namajunas holding in a submission to long and got body slammed for the finish.
Rose Namajunas has always been overlooked by the oddsmakers given her underdog status in her last three bouts.

We expect the odds to shift with Namajunas becoming the betting favorite as the fight approaches.
