Newly crowned UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade and her wife, Fernanda Gomez, were robbed at gunpoint this week. Gomez confirmed the incident on her Facebook page and MMA Junkie confirmed the incident with Andrade’s manager, Tiago Okamura.
“Friends, our car was stolen along with our cell phones. We are without contact for now, only on (Facebook) messenger,” Gomez wrote. “We’re fine! At home.”
Okamura verified the incident with MMA Junkie and confirmed Andrade was unharmed and doing fine following the robbery.
“She’s okay,” Okamura said. “They took her documents (including her passport), they took the car, they took phones. So we just spent the day doing paperwork and canceling credit cards. She did a (police) report, and also people are looking for the car.
