The debut of Jessica Andrade, the ‘Bate-Estaca’, in flyweight (up to 56.7 kg.) could not have been better. At UFC Ilha da Luta 6, held this Saturday (17th), in Abu Dhabi, besides hitting number one in the ranking, Katlyn Chookagian, with a knockout in the first round, the paranaense won one of the bonuses of ‘Performance of the Night’ and will take home US $ 50 thousand (about R $ 282.5 thousand). Jimmy Crute was also awarded for his performance and ‘Mateusz Gamrot x Guram Kutateladze’ was chosen as the ‘Best match’.
Jessica definitely can’t get enough of surprising her fans. Former strawweight champion (up to 52.1kg.) Of Ultimate, the Brazilian, this weekend made history by becoming the first woman in the company to test herself in three different categories. In the fight, the athlete was unaware of Chookagian and approached a fight for the belt, which, today, belongs to Valentina Shevchenko.
Light heavyweight representative (up to 93kg.), Jimmy Crute asked and was answered. After running over Modestas Bukauskas with a devastating knockout in the third fight of the main card, the athlete jumped the bars of the octagon and charged the organization’s president, Dana White, for the bonus. Crute then goes home with another $ 50,000 in his pocket.
In the fight that ended the preliminary card, Mateusz Gamrot and Guram Kutateladze had an eye-popping confrontation. Representatives of the lightweight (up to 70.3kg.) Athletes, who debuted in the organization, gave a great business card to the spectators and UFC directors. After three rounds of a lot of technique, movement and balance, Kutateladze was declared the winner in the split decision of the judges. The two fighters will take the company bonus.
