MODEL Two-time UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas teams up with and poses for American lingerie company Victoria’s Secret

UFC star Rose Namajunas has linked up with American lingerie company Victoria’s Secret for their latest ad campaign.

‘Thug Rose’ joined the likes of Paralympian Femita Ayanbek and Country music star Brittney Spencer, as well as models Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, as part of Victoria Secret’s ‘Undefinable’ ad campaign.

In addition to showcasing different ideals of beauty, Victoria’s Secret says each of the campaign stars demonstrates that ‘women are undefinable by anyone but themselves.’

The two-time UFC strawweight champion insists she is a long-time fan of the fashion brand and is amazed to be modelling alongside the women she once admired from afar.

“As long as I could remember, I was a fan of VS,” Namajunas told Rolling Stone.

“I remember watching the [Victoria’s Secret] Angels and the fashion show – those days were some of the most exciting times in the Nineties.

“It is pretty amazing that now I am one of those women I used to look up to in a unique way.”

This is not the first time Namajunas has modelled. In 2018, she stripped all the way down for the Women’s Health ‘Naked Issue’.

Away from her second career as a fashion model, Namajunas is one of the best female fighters in MMA history and has beaten a long list of top fighters, including Weili Zhang and Joanna Jędrzejczyk twice, Jessica Andrade, Michelle Waterson, Tecia Torres and Paige VanZant.

Earlier this year, the 30-year-old suffered a shock split decision defeat to Carla Esparza in a fight many consider to be one of the worst of all time after it was dubbed, ‘The stinker of all stinkers’ by UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

Prior to her uneventful fight with ‘The Cookie Monster’ at UFC 274, Namajunas was on a roll and had avenged a prior defeat to Andrade and beat Zhang in successive fights to win the 115lb belt before defending it.

The strawweight title will be on the line when Esparza clashes with Zhang at UFC 281 on November 13.

It’s currently unclear if Namajunas will get an immediate crack at the winner or if she’ll have to beat a top contender to earn another title shot.
