UFC star Jessica Andrade blames wardrobe malfunction for Erin Blanchfield loss as she reveals BOOB popped out | The Sun
JESSICA ANDRADE has claimed that a wardrobe malfunction was to blame for her defeat to Erin Blanchfield last weekend.
The former UFC strawweight champ took on up-and-comer Blanchfield in Las Vegas looking to get back into title contention.
But things didn't go to plan, as she suffered a second-round loss via rear-naked choke.
Explaining what went wrong to AG Fight, Andrade explained: "This is not an excuse, but when she came for the takedown, I lost focus.
"Because when she moved in, she put her shoulder just under my top and my breast completely slipped out. I lost focus and forgot to counter.
"All I could think of was my breast. When I used my hand to put my breast back in the top, that's when she was able to take me down.

"It's all part of the game, though. It's not an excuse. She really had a great game plan.
"It wasn't on purpose. We have to be ready for everything.
"I should've been prepared to let my breast be out if it slipped out. It has been shown in so many places before.
"I shouldn't even be worried about that."

Andrade, 31, did the UFC a favour by even accepting the bout, agreeing to step in for Taila Santos at short notice, despite Blanchfield being on a seven-fight win streak.
She had previously won her last three on the bounce herself, overcoming Cynthia Calvillo, Amanda Lemos and Lauren Murphy since losing her most recent title bout to Valentina Shevchenko in April 2021.
Andrade previously wore the belt in 2019, when she defeated Rose Namajunas at UFC 237.
She failed to defend her title, however, losing to current champ Zhang Weili in Shenzhen in her very next fight.
