Paige VanZant may not be a top fighter these days, but in December 2015 she was undefeated in the UFC and considered a star in the making.

Then she faced Thug Rose.

In a one sided and bloody fight the future champ really showed what a ruthless fighter she is. After picking apart VanZant completely, Namajunas finished her with a rear-naked choke in the fifth round.
