Rose Namajunas isn’t all that shy about talking about her dealings with emotional issues. She’s appeared numerous times with her emotional support dog Mishka. 

Without Mishka in tow at UFC 237 in Brazil, Namajunas put on a fantastic display at the UFC 237 open workouts, but got a little bit emotional when addressing the fans at the end. 

At Thursday’s UFC 237 media day, she spoke to MMAFighting and explained where her head is at ahead of her strawweight title defense against home country favorite Jessica Andrade on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro.
