Jessica Andrade, a well-known lesbian Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion, recently made history by doing something truly remarkable that has forever changed the world of MMA.

Jessica Andrade made headlines with her debut in the flyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). After achieving great success in both the Strawweight and Bantamweight categories, Andrade set her sights on conquering the flyweight division. Although she faced some setbacks along the way, Andrade remained determined and finally secured the opportunity to challenge Katlyn Chookagian, the top-ranked fighter in the division, at Ultimate Fighting Championship Fight Island 6.

Andrade's victory against Chagian was an accomplishment that will go down in history. For Andrade, this win held immense significance as she became the first woman to triumph in three different categories, thereby breaking a major record in UFC history.

Andrade's performance was nothing short of exceptional. From the very beginning of the fight, she displayed remarkable dominance over her opponent and delivered effective blows with precision and skill. Despite the weight of expectations and increasing pressure on her to succeed, Andrade remained calm and composed, staying focused on her ultimate goal.

Her historic triumph has set an incredible precedent for women fighters in the UFC, emphasizing their versatility and adaptability across multiple divisions.

“When you fight with happiness like I’m happy tonight, there’s only one result you can have,” Andrade said after the fight.

Now, thanks to this victory, she has a chance to win the flyweight title.

Andrade will face the winner of the fight Valentina Shevchenko (pictured below) vs. Jennifer Maia on November 21, 2020.

Shevchenko is currently the defending champion in the flyweight division, but Andrade could take the title away from her quickly.

“I think I can put up a fight against Valentina… It’s something that should have happened already in other organizations so I think I’m gonna make a difference,” Andrade said in her post-fight press conference. “Maybe with this fight, Jennifer Maia and Valentina, the UFC’s gonna want to have me have another fight. But I’m the person to do the movement in this division. It’s exactly what this division needs, it needs to be stirred around a little bit.”

Note that Andrade said she is ready to replace Mia or Shevchenko in the November 21 fight if one of them withdraws.
