Video: Title challenger Jessica Andrade proposes to girlfriend after UFC 211 loss

Jessica Andrade proposed to her girlfriend after facing Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 211.

Jessica Andrade, who was a completely game opponent, came up short on her title challenge against Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 211. While she may have lost her bout, she still is coming home with a different kind of victory. Moments after the bout, Andrade took the mic and proposed to her girlfriend inside the cage.

“I came here to be champ, but I’m still early in my career. I will still be coming back,” Andrade said through a translator during her post-fight interview. “But today, I want to make a big special request to my girlfriend, who is here, I want to ask her (hand) in marriage.”

Andrade looked to her significant other in the crowd, and saw her say yes and accept the proposal. The title challenger may have lost to the dominant champion, but Andrade is still just 25-years-old with a bright future ahead of her — and the new fiancée.

Watch the clip above. Andrade’s post-fight interview starts at the 2:25 mark.
