Meanwhile, Jessica Andrade (23-9 MMA) had last competed at September’s UFC 266 event, where she scored a first round TKO victory over Cynthia Calvillo in a flyweight bout. ‘Bate Estaca’ was returning to 115lbs in hopes of reclaiming the promotions strawweight title.

Tonight’s women’s strawweight main event begins resulted in a first round submission victory for the former division champion in Andrade (see that here). Jessica was able to secure a rare standing arm triangle choke in the early moments of the opening round which eventually forced Lemos to tapout.
