Off Debut Win, Marion Reneau to Fight Jessica Andrade


It didn’t take long for Marion Reneau to make an impression in the UFC.

After her one-sided win over Alexis Dufresne, Reneau will make a quick turnaround to face Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Night in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil February 22.

Reneau (4-1) fought Dufresne this past weekend in what was a striking clinic. It was the first time Reneau won by a decision, having won the rest of her fights via finishes. The performance garnered her an apology from UFC President Dana White, who rejected her from being a participant in “The Ultimate Fighter 18”.

Reneau will have her toughest challenge to date in Andrade (12-3) who has won three straight. Her most recent win saw her submit Larissa Pacheco, handing the fellow Brazilian her first loss.

The fight will most likely take place on the preliminary card. It will either air on Fox Sports 1 or stream on UFC Fight Pass.
