Rose Namajunas, a current contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 20, recently spoke out against abuse suffered and witnessed while training at the famed Roufusport in Milwaukee.
The gym is home to UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who is a coach on TUF 20 opposite of Namajunas. Duke Roufus is in charge of the gym, which is based out of Milwaukee.
I don't care what backlash I'll get I am standing up for what's right. No one is perfect but without honesty you've got nothing.

Recently, a fighter died after his bout in Wisconsin. Dennis Munson, a 24-year-old, collapsed in the ring after his loss this past Friday night, according to a report by the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. Munson was representing Roufusport at the card and making his amateur debut.
Namajunas has posted several messages of support that she has received, including those detailing other experiences with the gym on her Twitter page.
Namajunas talked with Karyn Bryant of MMA H.E.A.T. and was joined by her fiance, Pat Barry, and another fighter for the interview, which you can watch below.
