Rose Namajunas, Jessica Andrade agree to rematch at UFC 249
A rematch between former strawweight champions is on tap for UFC 249.
Less than a year after Jessica Andrade scored a stunning slam knockout of Rose Namajunas to claim the title, the pair will run it back in April.
On Thursday, MMA Junkie confirmed with two people close to the situation that Andrade (20-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) and Namajunas (8-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) have verbally agreed to a second fight at UFC 249. The people requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement. News of the fight being finalized was first reported by ESPN.com.
