Andrade Takes World Champion Role Seriously

UFC News

Given the relatively quick turnaround from her title-winning effort against Rose Namajunas at UFC 237, Andrade admits that she hasn’t had time to sit back and enjoy her victory and the belt, but she has already felt the impact of bringing Brazil another UFC championship.

“I’ve been able to help more people,” said the 27-year-old. “The belt is allowing me a platform to do a lot of good, especially to those close to me. To be able to have my training partner and friend Karol Rosa fighting on the same show as me is priceless.”

Andrade is one of the best ambassadors for the sport around the world and someone who is genuine in everything she does. It almost makes you forget that she is a terror on fight night whose highlight reel knockouts have made her an intimidating force when the Octagon door closes. Just take her win over Namajunas in Rio de Janeiro. There was nothing but respect and admiration between the two combatants before the fight, but it was on once it was time to go, and it was Namajunas racing out to an early lead that didn’t deter Andrade.
