Jessica Andrade’s coach “almost 100% certain” Valentina Shevchenko’s title battle is next – MMA Sports

It may not be long before we see former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade competing for the second title in her career.

After losing her last two fights in the £ 115 division, “Bait-Estaca” decided to start a new chapter in the flyweight division on her last outing. With a successful debut, Andrade did a quick job with top candidate Caitlin Chokagian. And it put her as the number one athlete in the weight class ranking.

Well, in an interview with Ag Fight, Jessica coach Gilead Parana claims that negotiations are on track to bring Andrade into the title battle with Valentina Shevchenko. In fact, trainers say the offer has already been made since December, but at that point the team isn’t ready to undertake the “bullet” and is waiting for a better date to book the match. ..

“The fight was offered to us in December, but the notification was too short,” Parana said. “Jessica had just fought and had some family and mental problems to solve. They contacted us about this Battle of Valentina in December and then again. I talked about it a couple of times. I’m just waiting for a good day for us and the promotion. “

“We’re looking to see if we have a chance to make this fight happen soon. Jessica’s next fight should be against Valentina, I’m almost 100% sure. If that doesn’t happen, we’ll fight anyone as usual. We asked the UFC to fight in March or April, so around March, April, and May, Jessica will fight again. You will fight. “

After losing the Weili Zhang title in August 2019, Jessica Andrade (21-8) made a split decision to Rose Namajunas on her next expedition in July 2020. That same year, he knocked out Katrin Chokagian in the first round of the UFC Fight Island 6.
