Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Jessica Andrade
Kowalkiewicz gave Jedrzejczyk a run for her money in their back-and-forth five round title bout at UFC 205 last November in New York City, but she didn’t have much luck against Gadelha last night.
With that being said, the UFC should book her against No. 4-ranked Jessica Andrade, who’s coming off of a more one-sided loss to Jedrzejczyk at UFC 211 last month.
Andrade, a former bantamweight, is a physically strong and aggressive fighter with powerful striking and a polished ground game. Kowalkiewicz, on the other hand, is a talented striker. A bout between the two makes complete sense from a rankings standpoint, but it also provides an interesting stylistic matchup.
