After an impressive TKO victory over the former strawweight champion, Carla Esparza, Suarez makes it clear she has her sights on gold. In her Octagon interview with Joe Rogan Suarez made a clear call out to the current women’s strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas.
Suarez continues her undefeated streak of seven wins. With a huge boost of momentum with a lopsided win against the “Cookie Monster”, she places herself in the conversion of title contention in the steadily growing women’s division.
The 26-year old title holder, Rose Namajunas, comes off two back-to-back title defences against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. If not this year, Rose’s next title fight will surely come in 2019 and Suarez is certainly in amongst the talks for the next opponent.
However, it is more than likely that there will be an eliminator with an orderly queue forming in the upper echelons. At the time of writing, Jessica Andrade and Karolina Kowalkewicz have yet to fight. After their battle, the conversation of who gets to fight Thug Rose will be that much clearer.
