The Fight Night card will be headlined by a previously-reported strawweight bout between heavy-hitters Jessica Andrade and Amanda Lemos, MMA Fighting has confirmed following a report from Combate. Andrade and Lemos are coming off wins over Cynthia Calvillo and Angela Hill, respectively.
Nascimento (8-1, 1 no contest) returns to the cage following a six-month doping suspension after failing a drug test for ritalinic acid, a metabolite of the banned stimulant methylphenidate. “Ze Colmeia” had his win over Alan Baudot overturned to a no-contest.
The 29-year-old went 1-1 in his previous UFC bouts, defeating Don’Tale Mayes prior to a first-round stoppage loss to Chris Daukaus. “Ze Colmeia” entered the UFC via Dana White’s Contender Series, submitting Michal Martinek in July 2019.
