Strawweight contender Jessica Andrade does not too wait around too much.
Following a staggering one-punch knockout win over Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 228, ‘Bate-Estaca’ has already called out division champion, Rose Namajunas, for a fight in the last pay-per view-card of the year.
On her own Instagram page, Andrade stated that a title shot has to happen for her next.
“This fight has to happen, guys,” Andrade wrote. “We already waited for too long. Help me post this all over social media, on your statuses and stories. Please tag the following profiles, Mick Maynard, Dana White, Sean Shelby, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Cris Cyborg, Rose Namajunas. The more people post this, the more likely it is that we can make it happen on December 29. We’re stronger together.”
Jessica Andrade (19-6) is on a three-fight winning streak, with victories over Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Tecia Torres and Claudia Gadelha. Her last loss came in May 2017, when she dropped a unanimous decision to then champion, Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
Namajunas (8-3) dethroned Jędrzejczyk by KO last November, then defended the belt in the immediate rematch at UFC 223. Her timetable for a return is unknown, as she is recovering from a neck injury.
UFC 232 will take place on December 29, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card will be headlined a women’s superfight between featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg, and bantamweight titleholder Amanda Nunes. The fight will put Cyborg’s title on the line.
