UFC 223 co-headliners Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk didn’t receive many questions or attention, as Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway really shined at Wednesday’s press conference, but there was a definite pro-Rose sentiment in the crowd. The two women helped close out proceedings with the traditional pre-fight presser staredown. We’ll be seeing them repeat this on Friday night at the ceremonial weigh-ins, then again when they’re in the Octagon on fight night itself.

UFC 223 takes place on April 7th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Namajunas is defending the strawweight title she took from Jedrzejczyk last November, when she memorably won by first-round knockout.
