Rose Namajunas is on a steady decline; she is currently on a two-match losing streak. Namajunas has shifted to the flyweight division; in her recent fight with Manon Fiorot, she suffered an awful injury. Her pinky finger was damaged in an attempted punch.

Her finger looked obnoxious in shape; catch a glimpse below:

However, the good news is that Namajunas is fine and won’t have to go through surgery.

She can make a fist, which indicates that there is nothing much to worry about. Rose Namajunas is set to face Amanda Ribas on 23rd March. A must-win for both fighters.

Rose Namajunas on her injury

Recently on The MMA Hour, Rose Namajunas reflected a little on the injury she faced in her fight with Manon Fiorot.

“I went through a sprint-step right hand,” Namajunas said, as quoted by “But my glove was a little wide. My hand probably was a little loose, too, and my pinky just caught right on her forearm.

It just jammed my pinky, and I knew instantly something was wrong. It was funny, because like, by the end of the fight, in the third round, I switched lefty and I started finding my left hand, and I was dropping her, I was like, ‘Oh, man, I wish we had two more rounds.’ I got all stressed out about it, and then I ended up seeing a hand specialist, and they said that I didn’t need surgery.

The only thing that surgery would really do is just make it a little more straight. As long as I can make a fist, and I can grab with it, and it’s strong ... the doc said it’s nothing that you could make stronger.

So it’s just like, you just got a little crooked finger. But it’s all all good, which is what I thought in the first place”.
