Jessica Andrade Says She's Expecting a Great Fight at UFC 171
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.14.2014



Jessica Andrade recently spoke with MMAjunkie about her fight with Raquel Pennington at UFC 171 this weekend. Check out the highlights:

On beating Rosi Sexton: "I think I proved to many people that sometimes heart speaks louder than technique...I was feeling very nervous in my UFC debut. Size wasn't the issue. I've faced many larger opponents and always did well. That's the case now, too."

On Pennington: "Raquel Pennington is [5 inches] taller than I. And regarding my second UFC bout, I was better prepared and more comfortable in the organization. Now I'm feeling very much at home...I think our fight will be great because she's a skilled boxer. However, I've been working on takedowns and ground-and-pound with my team. It was a facet of my MMA that I had been neglecting."

On her goals as a fighter: "I think I can go as far as I wish to go, but ultimately we must take one fight at a time. I hope to keep winning, renew my contract, keep learning new skills, so I can be closer to the belt each day."
