Jessica Andrade and Montana De La Rosa were at the centre stage of Wardrobe issues in the UFC recently.
As the previous co-headliner, Taila Santos, withdrew from the main event against Erin Blanchfield, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Strawweight champion came in to save the day for UFC Vegas 69. In round one, "Bate Estaca" had a mediocre amount of success, taking more shots than anticipated, but coming out on top with a 10-9 on one of the three judges' scorecards.
Andrade's success, sadly, came to a stop in the first frame. In the second round, Blanchfield promptly brought her Brazilian opponent to the mat and shortly after forced the tap with a rear-naked choke submission Andrade admits she was a little preoccupied with her UFC Venum kit during the closing move after the outcome.
Andrade noted that it was causing problems to her during the fight and her focus was on the issue.
Montana De La Rosa suffered a similar issue against Tatiana Suarez at UFC Vegas 70. Tatiana Suarez made her long-awaited return to the UFC to fight Montana. Though Tatiana secured the win, the attention went to the issue that Montana had faced.
The issue has now become a talking point in the MMA community with a long list of fighters weighing in on the situation.
When Andrade raised the issue, former UFC Fighter Roxanne Modafferi raised a valid point and noted that women should try wearing shirts inside the UFC Octagon.
“Maybe women should wear shirts then. Or get silicone sprayed on the bra underlining. They did that for me,” she noted on Twitter.
Roxanne was replying to the news which came out about Andrade.
