Rose Namajunas spoke with reporters at UFC Fight Night 139 about her recovery status, her next fight and more. Highlights are below per MMAjunkie:

On her recovery status: “Right now I’m kind of getting back into strength and conditioning, conditioning my body, not really taking impact to the head or anything like that. Just working on being a better athlete and, I guess, managing everything else in my life. Then after the holidays I think we could start talking about a fight.”

On a potential fight with Jessica Andrade: “I don’t see how anyone other than Andrade would make sense. I know she wants to stay active, and if she wants to have another fight until I’m ready, then that’s cool. But if not I’d love to have the chance at her.”

On her current focus: “But at the moment, all I’m focused on is just being a better martial artist, becoming a better athlete, and just one day at a time.”
