Jessica Andrade won by first-round submission in her return to the strawweight division Saturday night at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

Andrade defeated Amanda Lemos via the first standing arm-triangle choke in UFC history. The fight was stopped at 3:13 of the first.

The Brazilian was fighting at 115 pounds for the first time since July 2020. She went 2-1 at flyweight.

“I took a little break at flyweight, but this is my division,” Andrade said. “This is where I will perform the best. I know I’m going to perform for a title again. If I have to climb back up again, that’s what I’ll do. But if there is a spot to fight for the belt, give it to me.”

Andrade improved to 23-9. Lemos falls to 11-2-1.
