Rose Namajunas got her hand raised for the first time in nearly 2.5 years Saturday when she emerged victorious from the UFC on ESPN 53 main event vs. Amanda Ribas.

Namajunas (12-6 MMA, 10-5 UFC) outworked Ribas (12-5 MMA, 7-4 UFC) to a unanimous decision victory at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, moving the two-time strawweight champion to 1-1 since she joined the women’s flyweight division in September.

After her win, Namajunas named three potential opponents: the winner of Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 54 headliner between Erin Blanchfield and Manon Fiorot, or a showdown with Maycee Barber.
