The only two women on the main card of UFC 266, Jessica Andrade and Cynthia Calvillo will have something to prove on Saturday. This a contest that pits two highly ranked competitors against each other in a bout that may have title contention implications.
Andrade is looking to get back to winning ways after suffering a tough loss to flyweight superstar Valentina Shevchenko. Although putting up her best effort, she was unable to stifle the consistent takedown game of Shevchenko and ultimately fall pray to one of the wily veteran’s traps. That said, at only 29 years old, “Bate Estada” has plenty of room left to improve in the sport.
A powerful double threat finisher, the black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is as dangerous on the mat as he is on the feet, where she owns knockout power. On top of that, her offensive chain wrestling has improved significantly over recent yeas.
Calvillo has something to prove as a mere 9-2 veteran in the sport with a respectable 6-2-1 record in the organization. That said, Calvillo’s holds very few wins over competent competition and will find herself in the cage with a gritty, motivated, powerful, and stronger opponent on Saturday night.
