There’s a UFC event in Japan this weekend – UFC Fight Night 117 to be exact – and though there’s a female bout on the card, oddly enough, neither of the ladies are from Japan.
Which is fine, as the two female fighters are Claudia Gadelha and Jessica Andrade, they’re the co-main event, and there probably isn’t many female Japanese fighters available at their level.
Both Gadelha and Andrade have made their way to the upper level of the division, and they’ve both lost to champ Joanna Jędrzejczyk. So what’s left for them but to fight each other?
Anyway, here’s Joe Rogan with a break down of the fight.
