Jessica Andrade and Wylie Zhang face off in a lightweight bout today (Sat Aug 31, 2019) at UFC Fight Night 157 at the Shenzhen Universal Sports Center in Shenzhen, China, on ESPN + alone.
Jang opened the fight with an active lead with a low kick, prompting Andrade to miss with his favorite left hook. As Andrade pushed forward, Gian nailed her with his right hand. Andrade should never have stopped, the arena continued to attack and landed a few solid hooks, but Zhang's right hand landed again. This time, he sent Andrade to the bed for a moment. The Brazilian jumped back and climbed into the clinch, but that didn't hurt Gian's insult. At close range, Gian hit his elbows at home until he was able to secure the double-collar tie. From Gian's position, she tore her knees to the middle, causing her enemy to collapse under the hail of crime.
The whole fight lasted only about a minute.
Any opponent who has encountered Andrade in recent years has been successful in countering her advancing aggression with her right hand, but never like that! Zhang's own strength and physicality made all the difference, as her blows really affected Andrad. After the Chinese athlete injured her enemy, she never let her recover, really launching a Bate Estaca brutally to secure the finish.
Result: Wylie Gian defeats Jessica Andrade by knockout of the first round.
