Jessica Andrade was all set to battle Maryna Moroz and then Angela Hill, but due to circumstances beyond her control, she was never able to fight. Andrade is not deterred though, she would like to fight on February’s UFC Fight Night 104 card, with a trio of opponents in mind.
"Any top 5 would be a good fight for me,” Andrade said to MMA Fighting. "Michelle Waterson or Karolina would be good options, too. Or Angela Hill, the Invicta champion. Whoever they put in front of me, I’ll be focused and ready to win."
Andrade has a plan in mind to fight for the strawweight title, which begins with a fight at UFC Fight Night 104 and then a fight this April against the champion.
"I’m waiting for the UFC,” Andrade said. "I might fight on Feb. 4 in Houston. I’m waiting. I keep training, I never stop training. And I know that if they don’t get me a fight in Houston, I’ll definitely fight for the belt. They said I could fight in Houston since my December fight was cancelled, or they would find me date in March, but I told them I wanted to fight as soon as possible because (UFC champion) Joanna (Jedrzejczyk) will be ready to fight in April, so I’d fight now and go back in the gym to fight her in April."
UFC Fight Night 104 takes place on Saturday, February 4 from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas with Dennis Bermudez and Chan Sung Jung headlining.
