Blanchfield, a 23-year-old flyweight, faced off against the powerful Brazilian in the night’s featured contest. In a competitive first round, the two fighters traded blows, but it was Blanchfield who took control in the second with a quick takedown. From there, she locked in a rear-naked choke, which forced Andrade to submit. This victory solidified Blanchfield’s place as a force to be reckoned with in the women’s flyweight division.

In the co-main event, Jordan Wright and Zac Pauga faced off in a light heavyweight showdown, with Wright emerging victorious via unanimous decision. The UFC also announced that four fighters would receive performance bonuses, including Evan Elder and Nazim Sadykhov for their epic battle on the prelims, which ended with Sadykhov scoring a third-round TKO.
