UFC 261: Rose Namajunas says ‘better dead than red’ ahead of title fight vs China’s Zhang Weili

  • ‘I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Weili is red, that’s what she represents,’ says former strawweight champ Namajunas
  • ‘It’s nothing personal against her, but that’s a huge motivating factor of why I fight. I fight for freedom ... I’ve got Lithuanian blood and the American dream’
