Back at UFC 237, Andrade took the strawweight title from Namajunas courtesy of a second round KO slam.

But over a year later Thug finally bounced back from that setback to claim victory at UFC 251.

Namajunas produced two stellar rounds and then showed great heart to withstand a furious onslaught in the third to get her hand raised.

The slug fest, which was named Match of the Night, ultimately left the American with a nasty cut on her nose while her left eye was swollen shut.

Namajunas’ huge win has sparked championship talk with a future contest against Weili Zhang.

Speaking after the fight, she said: “The first part is just getting right with God; the rest is just technically, physically having fun again.

“I was hoping to get back in there by the end of the year, but we’ll see how my nose is doing,”

Fans on social media hailed Namajunas for her toughness as one tweeted: “wow I knew the hits were landing but damn.”

Another said: “Namajunas eye is the real loser of this fight.”

A third added: “Rose doesn’t look like the winner, but she squeaks out a split decision win. There’s a golf ball under that left eye.”
