This Saturday, Brazilian powerhouse Jessica “Bate Estaca” Andrade will attempt to dethrone strawweight champ Joanna Jędrzejczyck in what has the potential to be a FOTY candidate.
Days before her first title shot, watch Jessica Andrade’s handy work against Joanne Calderwood.
At UFC 203, Jessica Andrade faced fellow top contender and fan favorite Joanne “JoJo” Calderwood. In the opening round, JoJo landed a slick elbow that cut Jessica. Despite some blood, Andrade overpowered Calderwood– taking her to the ground with an explosive takedown and securing a tight guillotine in the last minute of round one. Check it out below!
Andrade is currently ranked #3 in the official UFC strawweight rankings. “Bate Estaca” holds a record of 16-5. Her title fight at UFC 211 will be her fourth fight as a UFC strawweight. Her first seven appearances in the UFC were in the bantamweight division.
