The co-feature of UFC 268 was a strawweight title rematch between Rose Namajunas and Weili Zhang. In their first contest, Namajunas took the belt by catching Zhang with a perfectly placed lead head kick, this was completely different. It was close and competitive, and went all five rounds.
I’m not sure how anyone could score that 4-1 for Namajunas, but she took home the belt in a split decision.
Check out the highlights from the bout below, along with a snippet from our play-by-play of the contest.
