It doesn’t get much better than tossing around the dangerous Muay Thai striker and then submitting her – all in the first round.
Andrade earned a performance bonus for her efforts and it will be interesting to see who the UFC matches her up with next. According to MMAFighting.com, she would like to challenge champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Quero agradecer a todos pela noite maravilhosa que tive ontem.
Uma vitória muito importante para minha carreira,… https://t.co/L6rtDIJtPZ

I’d like to see her fight former UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza first. The Cookie Monster was supposed to return at UFC 199, but that didn’t work out.
Thanks for all the support guys back at the dorms and back to work @tristargym tomorrow 💗👊

Bethe Correia’s aggressiveness and power shots kept Jessica Eye on the outside for most of the fight. I was frustrated by Eye’s inability to land combos. According to UFC.com, Bethe landed 69 total strikes (out of 170) for a 40 percent connect rate, compared to Eye’s 63 for 210 and a 30% percent striking rate.
Correia landed 49 of 150 significant strikes for 32 percent rate, while Eye connected on 26 of 150, for 26 percent.
Bethe’s aggressiveness won her the fight in my opinion.
While we’re waiting …

According to the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF), Team Sweden retains their No. 1 ranking, while Swedish flyweight Gabriella Ringblom was also ranked No. 1 pound-for-pound.

In July, Ringblom defeated Finland’s Annette Osterberg by unanimous decision at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships to win the flyweight belt.
There are no scheduled female fights currently planned for this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 94, but something else is looming on the horizon.
