Tatiana Suarez was on her way to solidifying herself as the #1 contender in the UFC women’s strawweight division. She was wildly impressive in her fight against Carla Esparza, as she ragdolled her and seemingly won every second of the fight. Then, Jessica Andrade fought Karolina Kowalkiewicz and scored a filthy KO.
In fact, the knockout was so nasty, I can’t remember any strawweight KO that even came close. Andrade was out there looking like a prime Wanderlei Silva. She stalked her opponent with no regard for her own health. She chased her around the cage and threw punches with bad intentions and at a high volume.
Eventually, in the first round of their fight, Andrade caught Karolina and snapped her head back; Rendering her unconscious.
Andrade and Suarez may need to square off for the #1 contender spot now because both were crazy impressive in their own way.
