How Did Rose Namajunas get her nickname Thug Rose?

Rose Namajunas’s intimidating scowl was what got her nicknamed Thug Rose when she was very young by some of her friends in her neighborhood.

When I was little, I was the only white girl, I was smaller than everyone else, and for some reason, I just acted harder than everybody else; just fearless, you know? So they kind of dubbed me that because of the intimidating scowl I always had on my face. That’s what gave me that name.

 

That’s just one aspect of my personality. I have a playful, fun-loving side, and I also have a very sensitive and emotional side to my personality. But it’s definitely one of the main things that most strangers will pick off of me from a first impression, that I really come off as this intimidating type of person. Like I said, it’s just one aspect of my personality, but I’m always practicing a staredown with strangers. Even going to the grocery store, I might mean-mug somebody just to see if I get a weird feeling from them. It’s practice.

 

And I think that’s one thing that fighters don’t really practice that much, is their intimidation and their mind games, and the intimidating looks that you can give to people. It really can win or lose you the fight if you have that down.

Why  Rose Namajunas cut her hair?

Rose Namajunas, nicknamed Thug Rose, could have tightly braided for her fights, but she didn’t want to bother, so she decided the best way to keep her hair away from her face was to chop it off.

“[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. It’s a fight not a beauty pageant. S**t’s in my way at practice… Cut it off!”
