Cyborg Gives Jessica Andrade NEW Nickname After Her Destruction Of Claudia Gadelha

UFC champion, Cris Cyborg.

UFC strawweight contender Jessica Andrade put on the best performance of her MMA career when she defeated Claudia Gadelha by unanimous decision at UFC Japan last night.

Gadelha came out very strong and had some early success but Andrade kept the pressure on her and looked to have broken Gadelha’s spirit by the end of round 2.

UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg was watching the fight between Jessica Andrade and Gadelha last night and was also thoroughly impressed by her performance. Andrade and Cyborg have always been very friendly with Andrade even volunteering to fight Angela Magana following her altercation with Cyborg at the UFC Athlete Retreat.

She explained her support for Cris Cyborg during an interview on earlier.

“Cris is a big friend of mine and I respect her a lot, and I saw everything that on Twitter, (Angela Magana) disrespecting Cris,” Andrade said. “I think you have to respect every fighter. She was acting like a clown. Cris visited a hospital for people who are battling cancer, something everybody should respect, and she’s making fun of it. That’s ugly.”

 “It’s easy to make fun of people who are in different weight classes because you know you can’t fight them,” she continued. “I want to see her do it to me. She likes to get attention talking trash, so talk trash to me and back it up inside the Octagon.”

Jessica Andrade doesn’t even care that the fight won’t do anything for her UFC career and just wanted to teach Magana a lesson in respect.

“I want to fight her only because of respect,” Andrade said. “She won’t do any difference for me in my career. She only loses, and hasn’t fought in two years. It won’t make any difference in my career. I want to fight her for respect. I want to see her talking trash someone in her weight class.”

“She just talks,” Andrade said. “Let’s see if she actually does something. It’s easy to talk, but it’s hard to actually do something. She can say anything she wants, as long as she takes the fight.”

“It’s not a tough fight,” Andrade said. “I can knock her out, I can submit her. I’ll win this fight by knockout and tell her inside the Octagon to be humble and respect people.”

Following her victory over Gadelha, and excited Cyborg jumped on Twitter to show her support for her Brazilian friend, paying her the biggest compliment possible.
