UFC Champion Andrade Robbed At Gunpoint
New UFC Strawweight champion Jessica Andrade was robbed in a frightening car jacking in Niteroi, Brazil on Thursday.
Andrade and her wife, Fernanda Gomes were driving in Andrade’s Honda HRV, when the assailants robbed both women of their smartphones and car.
Speaking with MMA Fighting, Andrade’s coach, Gilliard Parana said both Andrade and Gomes are fine, and luckily Andrade has car insurance, allowing her to get a new car.
Andrade has risen to the top of the 115 pound division, knocking Rose Namajunas out in the first round of their main event title fight at UFC 237 in Rio earlier this month.
