Rose Namajunas

Rose started practicing Taekwondo at the age of 5. She earned her junior black belt at age 9. After that, she went on to practice both karate and jiu-jitsu. While in high school, she started training in kickboxing and mixed martial arts with Duke Roufus at Roufusport, and she was also a senior-year wrestler at Milwaukee High School of the Arts. She began competing in MMA as an amateur in 2010 and the rest is history.

Namajunas’s moniker, “Thug Rose”, was given by friends when she was young because of her intimidating scowl.

I got it (nickname) from my neighborhood friends. When I was little, I was the only white girl, I was smaller than everyone else, and for some reason, I just acted harder than everybody else — just fearless, you know? So they kind of dubbed me that because of the intimidating scowl I always had on my face. That’s what gave me that name.
