Andrade has a MMA record of 18-6. She previously fought Jedrzejczyk at UFC 211 and lost the fight via unanimous decision. She is currently on a two fight win streak.

In a recent interview given to MMA Fighting, Andrade talked about a lot of different things. She focused on her roots and the significance of her war bonnet. She also gave her views on the Rose-Joanna rematch. Here’s what she said:

I think it’s really cool to represent my country with something that relates to it. We might think we don’t, but everyone descends from native Brazilians. When Portuguese arrived here, everyone was native Brazilians, so I have that in my blood. My great grandmother was caught in the woods, a pure native Brazilian, and I thought ‘well, nothing more beautiful than to represent your roots, your origin, where you came from, your strength.’ I seek that when I’m walking out fight.

When I put the war bonnet on, I think ‘it’s time now, I’m going to war, going to hunt.’ I imagine myself like a native Brazilian going to hunt, and everything works in the end. I feel the strength, the energy from not only the Brazilians, but my ancestors, my religion. When I get in there, I’m hard as a rock and nothing hurts me. (…) It’s great to know that you’re representing something you believe in in there. I truly believe in the Brazilian people, our strength, our desires.

When I put the war bonnet on I say ‘I’m going after my dream now, the dream of every Brazilian of being a warrior.’ I go with everything I have there, and it’s my time.

This fight is tough to predict and know who will win. Of course, I’m rooting for Namajunas. She’s an example of person as a champion, has represented the UFC well as a woman, so I’m rooting for Namajunas.
