Jessica Andrade established herself as the top 115lb contender with an absolutely brutal knockout win over Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Rose Namajunas’ division had a very interesting night at UFC 228 on Saturday as a pair of the event’s fighters made two strong claims towards them getting the next crack at the belt.
Tatiana Suarez managed to turn in an almost Khabib-esque performance in her three-round mauling of the former champion Carla Esparza but make no mistake, the win that garnered the most attention came on the evening’s main-card.
We all knew what Jessica Andrade was going to bring to the table. Relentless pressure, insane cardio, a seemingly indestructible chin. Well, after her title-eliminator showdown with Karolina Kowalkiewicz last night – you can now add ‘one-punch power’ to that list.
Not much else needs to be said, this knockout was simply ridiculous.
WOW! WOW! WOW! 😱
Is that Jessica Andrade or Mike Tyson?! 💥

Sure, the title of ‘greatest women’s MMA KO of all-time’ may still remain with Holly Holm but for one-hitter quitters, it doesn’t get any better than this.
