Rematch between Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade is back on July 11 on a card expected to be UFC 251 on the UFC’s “Fight Island” at a currently undisclosed location. MMA Junkie confirmed the booking following an initial Wednesday report by MMAFighting.com.
The fight originally was scheduled for UFC 249, but was scuttled when Namajunas (8-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) had to withdraw.
In their first meeting, Andrade (20-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC), an underdog, stunned the MMA world by defeating Namajunas to win the strawweight championship with a second-round slam knockout at UFC 237. Andrade then dropped the title to current champion Zhang Weili, a loss that snapped a four-fight winning streak.
