Solidarity is soooo 2017.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight contender, Jessica Andrade, took a unanimous decision win over Tecia Torres at the UFC on FOX 28 mixed martial arts (MMA) event last month in Orlando, Florida.

And much to her dismay, reigning women’s bantamweight titleholder, Amanda Nunes, was standing and cheering for “Tiny Tornado,” despite sharing a Brazilian background with “Bate Estaca.”

I guess that shit doesn’t fly back where they’re from.

“I could see Amanda cheering for Tecia, in English, during my fight.” Jessica told AG Fight. (via Bloody Elbow). “She was yelling the whole fight. If you’re going to cheer against someone from your own country, at least contain yourself. Her woman is in my weight class, maybe we’ll meet some time and maybe I’ll take it out on her.”

Her “woman” is UFC strawweight bruiser Nina Ansaroff.

If that fight fails to materialize, Andrade believes Nunes will get her comeuppance at the hands of featherweight smashing machine Cris Cyborg, who is expected to meet “Lioness” in a champion vs. champion showdown later this year.

“I think Amanda got ahead of herself when she asked for the Cyborg fight,” Andrade said. “I was pissed off when I heard about it. I’m huge fan of Cris’. It’s horrible to have two Brazilians fighting each other, but it’ll be good for Amanda to have her ass kicked and be put back in her place by Cris.”

Andrade may have put herself in a position to challenge for the 115-pound strap, which Rose Namajunas will put on the line against a familiar foe at the upcoming UFC 223 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Brooklyn, New York.
