Upon receiving word of a challenge from Gadelha, a response would come from Andrade via Instagram:



Então as pessoas interpretam errado o que a gente fala, o que foi perguntado para min era qual seria minha próxima adversária para lutar no UFC e como nunca sabemos quem será nossas adversárias pois é o UFC que decide e fecha as lutas eu disse que em uma próxima luta o UFC podia fechar uma luta com alguma das garotas que estão rankeadas como Tecia Torres, Rose Namajunas ou @claudiagadelhaufc ,Mas já que nunca encontram adversárias nem pra @claudiagadelhaufc nem pra min, acho que juntas nós daríamos um show, não é mesmo @claudiagadelhaufc ?? É difícil ter que lutar com uma co-patriota, mas se essa luta acontecer eu tenho certeza que será um belo confronto, Sim eu aceito! @danawhite @seanshelby @ufc @ufc_brasil ---------------- So the people misinterpret what we are talking about, what was asked for min was what my next opponent to fight in the UFC and how we never know who our opponents will be because it's the UFC that decides and closes the fights I said in a Next fight UFC could close a fight with some of the girls who are ranked as Tecia Torres, Rose Namajunas or @claudiagadelhaufc, But since they never find adversaries neither for @claudiagadelhaufc nor for min, I think together we would give a show, is not it really? @claudiagadelhaufc ?? It's hard to have to fight a co-patriot, but if this fight happens I'm sure it will be a handsome showdown, yes I do! @danawhite @seanshelby @ufc @ufc_brasil
