A rematch of the UFC championship clash that saw Andrade unseat Namajunas from the strawweight throne, this second go-round between the former titleholders could determine who is next in line to challenge reigning champ Zhang Weili. Andrade won the first bout after elevating Namajunas and slamming her to the canvas roughly three minutes into the second round.
She had attempted to do so earlier in the frame, but was forced to return the then-champion to the canvas as Namajunas worked on a kimura trap. Soon after, Andrade tried for a second time and found success, claiming the strawweight title with a vicious slam knockout. Through the first five minutes, it appeared like the champion was set to coast to another successful title defense, only to have Andrade make the necessary adjustments to get inside, scoop Namajunas into the air, and slam her to the canvas.
More than a year later and with roughly eight minutes of experience against one another to draw from, what will a second meeting between the two look like on July 11? Can Namajunas stick her jab consistently and keep Andrade at range or will the powerful Brazilian once again find a way to close the distance and demonstrate her strength in close quarters? Henry Cejudo surprised everyone when he announced his retirement following his second-round stoppage victory over Dominick Cruz at UFC , paving the way for Yan and Aldo to battle it out for the vacant bantamweight strap on Yas Island.
The Brazilian legend was originally supposed to be the one sharing the Octagon with Cejudo this summer but was pulled from the bout due to visa issues. He was a surprise choice as a title challenger given that he landed on the wrong side of a split decision verdict in his divisional debut opposite Marlon Moraes last December, however there is no denying that Aldo is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and in the rare class of competitors who can merit a championship opportunity on pedigree.
Yan arrived in the UFC two years ago and has been laser-focused on fighting for championship gold from Day One, racking up six straight wins inside the Octagon and nine consecutive victories overall to cement his standing as one of the top bantamweights in the world. The confident Russian enters this one off a third-round stoppage win over Urijah Faber, eager to add another legendary figure to his list of vanquished foes.
