The Jéssica Andrade vs Erin Blanchfield fight will take place at UFC Apex in Nevada.

How will the fight play out?

Andrade, the Brazilian fighter, owns a record of 24 wins and 9 losses. Her remarkable footwork is an undeniable advantage, enabling her to create a strong sense of pressure and restrict her opponents’ movements.

In addition to that, Andrade’s impeccable skills in jiu-jitsu are a force to be reckoned with. Erin must exercise utmost caution and avoid any critical missteps to avoid costly mistakes. Andrade’s recent triumphs over formidable fighters like Lauren Murphy, Amanda Lemos, and Cynthia Calvillo attest to her strength, with her only defeat in recent memory coming from the highly skilled Valentina Shevchenko. Andrade’s experience and age also give her an edge over her upcoming opponent, Erin.

Erin Blanchfield, the 23-year-old American fighter, boasts a commendable record of 10 wins and 1 loss, a testament to her dedication and perseverance in the sport. Although Erin has demonstrated steady progress in each fight, this will be her maiden encounter against a top-5 ranked adversary. Nonetheless, if she can exhibit the same level of control she did against Molly McCann, Erin has the potential to make things quite challenging for Andrade.
