After losing the first round of the fight at the UFC 237 main event fight against Rose Namajunas, Jessica Andrade was aware that she needed to mix things up a little bit.
Rose Namajunas, the defending champion of the UFC strawweight title, controlled the fight for the first 5 minutes as she used her speed and range to thwart her Brazilian opponent. However, Andrade then decided to make a comeback in the second round of the fight as she ended the fight with one of her most amazing performances yet.
Namajunas, whose career record is 8-4 in MMA and 6-3 in UFC, was slammed by Andrade who career record is 20-6 in MMA and 11-4 in UFC.
The slam resulted in a knockout win for Andrade at the mark of 2:34.
Andrade in her postfight interview said, “I was very certain as to what I had to do in the second round. I have never performed this move before in UFC.”
Andrade had earlier attempted a slam move in the first round which was negated by Namajunas but the second one whose could not avoid. Namajunas was lucky that she did not suffer a broken neck.
With this loss, Namajunas’s three match win streak comes to an end and she also suffered her career’ 2nd knockout loss.
