Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s strawweight contenders Claudia Gadelha and Jessica Andrade will collide later tonight (Fri., Sept. 22, 2017) at the UFC Fight Night 117 mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
Gadelha (15-2) has just two losses on her professional record and both came against undefeated strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the greatest female fighter currently competing under the UFC banner.
Andrade (16-6) captured three straight wins at 115 pounds before losing a decision to Jedrzejczyk and while it was not competitive, she did prove how tough she can be when the fists start flying.
