Undefeated Polish standout Karolina Kowalkiewicz put forth her best performance to date in a career-defining victory tonight at UFC 201: “Lawler vs Woodley” in Atlanta, Georgia. Kowalkiewicz outpointed former UFC title challenger “Thug” Rose Namajunas in the strawweight co-main event.
Kowalkiewicz got off to a slow start early on in tonight’s contest, but she methodically wore Namajunas down with dozens of powerful knee strikes to the body. A dominant final round sealed the fight in Kowalkiewicz’s favour, and she may now move on to rematch countrywoman Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
