The post 10 Hottest MMA Couples Of All-Time appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Who would have thought that one could find romance in the up-and-down, rough-and-tumble world of fighting?

Fighters tend to enjoy dating other fighters; maybe it’s the fact that it’s a tough lifestyle for a non-fighter to adjust to, with long hours of training and travel that just makes it easy to date someone of common interest.

Whatever the reason, fighters and other big-name personalities surrounding the sport have coupled up more often than you think, so here are the 10 hottest couples in MMA:

10. Travis Browne & Ronda Rousey

Perhaps these two could be higher on the list, but these two aren’t active in MMA at the current time.

But Rousey was once MMA royalty, so by extension “Hapa” was one half of MMA’s hottest power couple.

Although they ultimately found love, things took an unexpected turn when the two took their talents to Glendale Fighting Club. Under Edward Tarverdyan’s tutelage, Browne and Rousey began losing fights consistently, and “Rowdy” couldn’t mentally handle defeat. “Hapa,” too, is on the worst skid of his MMA and UFC career and has been violently finished in all of his recent losses.

Now, Ronda is in the WWE and Browne has still yet to fight or have a fight scheduled since his last defeat to Oleksiy Oliynyk in July 2017.

Rose Namajunas is still willing to fight Joanna Jedrzejczyk, but there’s a catch

Jedrzejczyk is coming off of back-to-back losses as a result of fighting the current UFC women’s strawweight champion twice.

Their first fight went down in November at UFC 217 where Namajunas won with a first-round knockout and their second fight went down at the UFC 223 pay-per-view event in April that saw Namajunas win by decision.

During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, the UFC champ stated that as of right now she doesn’t want to fight Jedrzejczyk at the moment.

Instead, she wants to fight other contenders while Jedrzejczyk gets a few more wins under her belt.

“Right now, that fight doesn’t really interest me at the moment,” said Namajunas (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting). “I think I’d be interested to see how she does with somebody else before even entertaining that possibility. At the moment, there’s not much to gain from running that back again.”

“Unless she’s says I’m the best – publicly!” said Namajunas. “Publicly because I already know she knows. You gotta say it to everybody! [Laughs] She knows I’m the best but she won’t admit it to everybody.”

The former UFC women’s strawweight champion is slated to take on fellow strawweight contender Tecia Torres at the upcoming UFC on FOX 30 event.

UFC on FOX 30 is set to take place on July 28 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. The main card will air on FOX while the preliminary card will be split broadcasted on FOX and the promotion’s streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.

Rose Namajunas Wants To Test Mackenzie Dern’s Skills

Rose Namajunas wants to test her grappling against Mackenzie Dern…

The post Rose Namajunas Wants To Test Mackenzie Dern’s Skills appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Due to her decorated history as a world-class Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion, Mackenzie Dern has gained quite a bit of attention since making her debut as a UFC strawweight this past March at UFC 222 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And she’s been successful thus far, picking up a split-decision victory over Ashley Yoder in her promotional debut and submitting Amanda Cooper last weekend at UFC 224 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The only problem, however, is that Dern has had issues making weight. In fact, she weighed in seven pounds over the 115-pound limit for her bout against Cooper. Because of that, it’s unclear whether or not she’ll remain in the strawweight division, but if she does, Rose Namajunas would like a shot at her:

“Other than the weight issue, I thought she looked great,” Namajunas said on a recent edition of the “UFC Unfiltered” podcast. “That is something, I’ve always wanted to test my jiu-jitsu against, that would be awesome, I would like to face her. But, she just has to get her shit together and that may be down the road.

“She beat Gabi Garcia in a jiu-jitsu match, so that would be awesome. And she can obviously strike a little bit. She has that heavy first step, that a wrestler has sometimes that good right hand. You can tell she has that style developing. So it will be interesting to see if she can fix her issues and maybe she can be a future contender.”

Namajunas, the reigning strawweight champion, is coming off of back-to-back victories over ex-titleholder Joanna Jedrzejczyk, but her next fight has yet to be set. Dern is likely a few fights and a few issues to fix away from earning a title shot, but the match-up could be an intriguing one down the road.
