UFC Nashville Set to Feature Jessica Andrade vs. Tatiana Suarez and More Exciting Fights

The upcoming UFC Nashville event at the Bridgestone Arena on August 5 will showcase a highly anticipated strawweight bout between former champion Jessica Andrade and the undefeated contender Tatiana Suarez. This thrilling matchup has been designated as the co-main event for the evening.

UFC officials recently unveiled the full fight card for the Tennessee event, including the addition of Andrade versus Suarez. Originally, Suarez was scheduled to face Virna Jandiroba, but unfortunately, Jandiroba sustained a knee injury that necessitated surgery. Stepping in to replace her is Andrade, who is eager to rebound from her recent losses to Yan Xiaonan and Erin Blanchfield.

Suarez, on the other hand, is looking to uphold her flawless record. With an impressive 6-0 resume in the UFC, she has secured victories over former strawweight champion Carla Esparza and current flyweight titleholder Alexa Grasso.

Having recovered from a lengthy injury-induced hiatus, Suarez returned to the octagon in February, triumphing with a submission win against Montana De La Rosa. Now, she faces another former champion in Andrade, marking a significant step up in competition.
