Third-ranked UFC strawweight Rose Namajunas is fresh off a hard-fought decision win over Tecia Torres at UFC Fight Night: Teixeira vs. Evans and is potentially just one win away from earning another shot at the UFC strawweight title.
If she's looking for a possible opponent, fifth-ranked strawweight Valerie Letourneau wants Namajunas to know she's available.
With all Respect to Rose, I've never called anyone out, but there is always an exception. After watching the fight between Rose and Tecia, I want to say congrats to Rose. That was a great fight between you two. But, if you want a good test prior to having a potential fight with Joana or Claudia, let me offer my services. I'm sure our fans would be excited for this fight. I don't mind waiting... At this moment, there is no other fight that I am more motivated for than a potential fight with you. Avec tout mon respect envers Rose, je n'ai jamais challenger personne, mais il y a exception toute choses. Aprs avoir regard le combat entre Rose et Tecia ce weekend, je dois dire un gros flicitation Rose. Ce fut un super combat entre vous deux. Mais si tu veux un bon test avant de potentiellement faire face Joana ou Claudia, laisse moi t'offrir mes services. Je suis sr que nos fans seraient excit pour ce combat. Je suis prt a t'attendre ... En ce moment, il n'y a pas un combat pour lequel je serait plus motiv que celui ci! #ufc #UFCTampa #ufc200 #strawweight #namajunasvsletourneau #strikers #wmma

Letourneau won her first three fights inside the Octagon before suffering a loss to champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 193. Letourneau showed she was as tough as they come, absorbing 220 significant strikes while dishing out 103 of her own, the most Jedrzejczyk has been hit in her five UFC fights.
Namajunas, who lost to Carla Esparza for the title during "The Ultimate Fighter" season 20 finale, has put on three consecutive impressive performances. Two of those wins came by way of submission, including a complete grappling clinic against Paige VanZant last December.
Both Letourneau and Namajunas bring high pace and pressure inside the Octagon, so a matchup between these two would be a treat.
