Andrade (19-6) has won three in a row and six of her last seven, the only loss coming against Jedrzejczyk in a 2017 title challenge.

The card also features a trio of legends. Anderson Silva fights in the co-main event, and fellow Brazilian Jose Aldo is also on the main card, while BJ Penn competes in a prelim.
