Former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade believes that she can shake up the flyweight division.
SPOILER ALERT: She already has!
With her win over No. 1 ranked Katlyn Chookagian at UFC Fight Island 6, Andrade made a significant splash in the deep end of the flyweight pool. Though she may have to take another fight in the meantime, Andrade is easily poised for a shot at the UFC flyweight title.
Current 125-pound champ Valentina Shevchenko is currently slated to defend against Jennifer Maia at UFC 255 on Nov. 21, but Andrade would be a threatening challenger no matter who wins.
