Andrade to Fight Calvillo at UFC 266

Following news earlier this week that the UFC 266 card would be shifted to a later date, now confirmed to be September 25th.

A top-ranked Flyweight contest has been added to the card, as Jessica Andrade will face Cynthia Calvillo on the Pay-Per-View card.

Jessica Andrade (21-9) moved up to Flyweight from 115 pounds and made her mark quickly, dispatching Katlyn Chookagian with a ferocious body shot. Her title shot against Valentina Shevchenko proved to be too much, as she was finished by ground and pound in the second round. She is currently ranked at #1 at 125 pounds.

Former Strawweight Cynthia Calvillo (9-2-1) stepped up to Flyweight in a main event opposite Jessica Eye, which Calvillo won by unanimous decision. Her next appearance against divisional staple Katlyn Chookagian saw her fail to replicate that success, losing by decision.

The UFC 266 card will be headlined by the Light Heavyweight title fight between Glover Teixeira and Jan Blachowicz.
