WATCH: Andrade Drops Namajunas For Strawweight Title

One mistake by Rose Namajunas resulted in a huge night for Jessica Andrade. Relive Andrade’s comeback win over “Thug Rose” to become the new UFC Strawweight Champion.

In her backyard of Rio de Janeiro, Andrade (20-7) was getting tagged by Namajunas (8-4) throughout the first round. Namajunas caught Andrade in a kimura after attempting to lift Rose up. In the second, Andrade was finally able to lift Rose up and dropped her on her neck. A few shots to the face later and Andrade became champion.

Andrade later lost the belt to Weili Zhang. Bother fighters are currently scheduled to fight in a rematch at UFC 249 on April 18. The winner could end up becoming the number one contender.
