Jessica Andrade wasted little time after her knockout victory over Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 228 to call out the reigning champion in her weight class.
Andrade (19-6) immediately challenged Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas to a fight at UFC 232. Their fight would most certainly be the co-main under the superfight main event between Featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes.
She reiterated the challenge via her Instagram account:

Namajunas is recovering from a neck injury, and the length of recovery is uncertain.
What do you think? Should Namajunas defend her title against Andrade when she returns from injury, or someone else?
