Why Did Rose Namajunas Shave Off Her Hair?
Rose Namajunas used to sport long blonde locks of hair before she decided to go bald. She shaved off her hair days before her fight against Paige VanZant, which served as the headliner of UFC Fight Night 80 on December 10, 2015 in Las Vegas.
Speaking to the media and explaining why she shaved her hair, Rose Namajunassaid;
“[It’s] Just years and years of playing in sports, not just fighting, hair’s been growing up, and being a tomboy growing up and not really wanting to have to do my hair. I don’t even know how to do [my hair]. I just had to put a whole bunch of product in it. I just want to be able to wake up in the morning and feel pretty and not have to do a whole bunch of cr*p [to my hair]. It is definitely like shedding my past, being psychologically mean of my hair as well as physically, and just ripping it out.”
Rose Namajunas beat Paige VabZant, who was on a 4-fight win streak going into the fight.
She put her heart and grit on display as she submitted VanZant in round 5 via rear-naked choke submission.
This win earned her the ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus.
Rose Namajunas’ fiance at the time, Pat Barry, who rose to defend why Rose shaved her hair said;
“Rose is the main event of a UFC fight card and everyone wants to ask her about her haircut. What does the haircut have to do with the fight? I have no idea. When it comes down to training, when it comes down to everything else, she cut it so it could be out of her way. It was a problem.”
