Jessica Andrade is currently scheduled to fight at UFC 207, Dec. 30 in Las Vegas. She actually arrived in Las Vegas Monday morning.

However, as of Tuesday afternoon, Andrade still doesn't know if she will in fact fight on the card.

According to her manager Tiago Okamura, the UFC has yet to find a new opponent for Andrade, but they are still trying to do so. Andrade was originally scheduled to fight Maryna Moroz and then Angela Hill, but those fights fell through for various reasons.

Now, Andrade, who Okamura says currently weighs approximately 128 pounds, would even be open to a catchweight fight.

"Her weight is the best it's ever been," He said. "Her cardio is perfect. It will be a shame to not get a fight now and have her go back home and [start] another camp."

Andrade (15-5) is 2-0 since dropping down to 115 pounds earlier this year, with wins over Jessica Penne and Joanne Calderwood.
