Taking main event status at the UFC Apex facility in ‘Sin City’ — a pivotal, potential strawweight title-eliminator between the streaking #10 ranked contender, Amanda Lemos, and former undisputed division champion, Jessica Andrade.
Belem veteran, Lemos has managed to land a five-fight winning run since a close UFC debut decision loss, most recently besting common-foe, Angela Hill with a close, split decision win back at UFC Vegas 46 in December. The bout earned Lemos and Hill Fight of the Night honors.
Making her return to 115lbs for the first time since July 2020, Parana native, Andrade most recently turned in a one-sided late opening round knockout win over Cynthia Calvillo in her most recent flyweight matchup in September of last year at UFC 266.
