UFC 237: Namajunas vs. Andrade fight card

The UFC is back in Brazil for a pay-per-view event on Saturday, May 12th from Rio de Janeiro. In the main event, Rose Namajunas defends her strawweight title in enemy territory against the strong and hard-hitting Jessica Andrade. In the co-main, legendary former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva takes on Jared Cannonier. There’s also ex-WEC and ex-UFC featherweight king Jose Aldo battling Alexander Volkanovski in a fight that should absolutely be five rounds, but we’ll have to settle for three.

On the prelims, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira fights Ryan Spann, and hall-of-fame former two-division champion B.J. Penn is indeed still on the card despite his ongoing legal and personal problems, as he faces Clay Guida.
