Tatiana Suarez confident she can beat Rose Namajunas more decisively than she just beat Carla Esparza

Tom Taylor - September 12, 2018

Last weekend, on the undercard of the action-packed UFC 228 card in Dallas, Texas, The Ultimate Fighter 23 winner Tatiana Suarez picked up her biggest win to date, walloping inaugural UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza to a third-round TKO victory. Having earned this massive win, Tatiana Suarez is now just a few short steps away from a title fight with UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas. And while she might have to take another fight in the meantime, she feels she’s more than capable dispatching Namajunas when they inevitably share the cage. In fact, she believes she can thump Namajunas even more decisively than she just beat Carla Esparza. Esparza, after all, is a wrestler, and Suarez soundly out-wrestled her. Namajunas, meanwhile, is not a wrestler.
