UFC Vegas 52: Amanda Lemos vs. Jessica Andrade live results and highlights

UFC Vegas 52: Amanda Lemos vs. Jessica Andrade live results and highlights.

Amanda Lemos has the opportunity to pick up even more momentum and jump her way toward a potential title shot when she meets former UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade in the main event of UFC Vegas 52.

Lemos dropped her UFC debut to Leslie Smith in August 2017 and then was given a two-year USADA ban after testing positive for stanozolol. But she returned with a vengeance at the end of 2019 and has won all five of her fights since.

After submitting Miranda Granger and picking up a decision over Mizuki Inoue, Lemos’s 2021 saw her score TKOs of Livia Renata Souza and Montserrat Ruiz before a huge split-decision victory over Angela Hill at UFC Vegas 45 in December.

This is Andrade’s first fight at strawweight after taking three consecutive fights at strawweight. Her venture at 125 saw her get a first-round finish of Katlyn Chookagian to earn a shot at champion Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 261, which Andrade lost via second-round TKO. Andrade most recently scored a late first-round TKO of Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 266.

Andrade had claimed the strawweight title with a second-round knockout of Rose Namajunas at UFC 237, only to drop the title to Weili Zhang in her first defense at UFC Shenzhen in late August 2019.
