In an amazing fight announcement, Jessica Andrade will battle Tecia Torres at UFC on FOX 28.
I absolutely love this fight. The UFC has announced that Jessica Andrade will meet Tecia Torres at UFC on FOX 28 in Orlando, FL. This will undoubtedly be a firefight at 115 pounds. The winner will be in striking range for a title shot against current Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas.
Tecia Torres (10-1) has won three impressive fights in a row to put herself in line for a potential title shot. She’s beaten Bec Rawlings, Juliana Pena and Michelle Waterson in those fights. She’s lost only once in her career, and that was against champion Rose Namajunas. That was a great fight at UFC on FOX 19. Tecia Torres is currently ranked number 5 in the division.
Jessica Andrade (17-6) has been improving by leaps and bounds and enters this fight having won five of her last six. The lone defeat was against then champion, Joanna Jedrzejcyk. In her last fight, she very impressively defeated the uber-tough Claudia Gadelha and that victory moved her up the UFC rankings all the way up to number 2.
This is a great fight and it is part of an Orlando card that is starting to look pretty good. Ben Saunders will be taking on Alan Jouban in a fight that will certainly deliver on the action.
