UFC Fight Night 30 results: Jessica Andrade dominates Rosi Sexton

Esther Lin

In her UFC debut in July up in Seattle, Jessica Andrade showed real potential with a strong first round before losing in the second to Liz Carmouche.

Saturday, the Brazilian youngster demonstrated that her strong showing in her debut was no fluke. The 22-year old easily handled tough veteran Rosi Sexton at UFC Fight Night, dominating for 15 minutes en route to a unanimous-decision victory.

The judges' scores were 30-26, 30-27, and 30-26.

"She's really happy about the win," said Andrade's interpreter. "A lot of people back in Brazil were saying it was not her time to be there, but she hopes this proves it belongs. She's only 22, she has plenty of time to improve still, we got a result."

Andrade took the action to Sexton, who was fighting in her home town of Manchester, from the get-go, mixing up kicks and kness and really bringing it to her along the fence. Andrade also landed an illegal knee late in the round, but it didn't appear to have much effect.

The Brazilian really poured it on in the second round, to the point it was a surprise the fight wasn't stopped. This was likely the round which earned a pair of 10-8s. The 36-year old Sexton, apparently too tough for her own good, came back out in the third, but couldn't mount a rally as Anrdade cruised to victory.

"There were a few times where the fight could have been stopped," Andrade said. "But props to Rosi, she's super tough."

Andrade improved to 10-3 with her third win in her past four fights. Sexton (13-4) has dropped two in a row.
