“I feel good, I feel stronger and that has made a big difference for me. Fight against Katlyn chookagian it will be great for me. I always wanted to fight the best and she is number one at 125 behind Valentina (Shevchenko), and she just beat her sister so she’s a great fighter. I think (a victory) puts me in the classification, “the South American began.
At the same time, Jessica She also communicated: “I am making history as the first woman to fight in three weight classes (in the (UFC) and this looks great to me. I will be ready for this fight. She is a difficult opponent, I do not underestimate her.” She has a great reach and she works with good kicks and submissions, so she is a dangerous opponent, but I am happy because I always wanted to fight with the best and I have the opportunity to do it again in all weight classes.
Dream about the title
“It’s a new challenge and a new way of growing for me and who knows, I might have a shot at the belt next. I no longer say ‘I’ll only fight in this weight class’ because I told the UFC that I would be ready to fight at 115, 125 or 135 if they needed me. Right now, I think the UFC would give me a chance to fight for the belt with Shevchenko or Jennifer (Maia) with a big win over Katlyn chookagian”, Remarked the Brazilian.
Closing with his words, Jessica Andrade He expressed: “To beat Shevchenko, you would have to shorten the distance and work with blows near the cage to take away energy, their strength and work with the ground and hit or something like that. She works well at the top, but she jerks her back a lot while trying to get up, so you will need someone as strong as her and who knows how to stop her on the ground. You can’t give it space. Valentina needs space, she is fast ».
