The two ladies met in the main event of UFC 237 and the Brazilian emerged victorious claiming her first ever UFC strap.
“The person that I would really like to fight again would definitely be Rose,” Andrade told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani.
“Because she did a very nice act of kindness to me by going to Rio to defend her belt — she had no obligation to do that. And if she ever wants to fight again for the belt, I know she’s figuring some stuff out, but if she wants to do it I’ll be happy to go to Denver and defend in her hometown the same way she did to me.”
The 27-years-old Andrade added that if Rose retires from MMA, she’ll would target a fight with the winner of Nina Ansaroff and Tatiana Suarez.
