In a stunning display of skill and determination, Tatiana Suarez showcased her considerable potential by submitting former 115-pound champion Jessica Andrade in the second round of their clash at UFC on ESPN 50 in Nashville. Despite injuries derailing her progress in the past, Suarez has proven herself to be a formidable talent with a seven-bout winning streak in the UFC. This latest victory propels her to the No. 5 spot in Sherdog’s strawweight rankings, positioning her for a potential title opportunity in the division.
Suarez’s journey has been one of resilience and perseverance. Had it not been for those injuries over four years ago, she might already be a champion. However, she has bounced back stronger than ever, and her victory over Andrade solidifies her status as a top contender.
While Suarez celebrates her triumph, she will also be keeping a close eye on the upcoming clash between Weili Zhang and Amanda Lemos at UFC 292 in Boston. The outcome of that fight could determine Suarez’s path to a title shot. As an interested observer, she knows that her own destiny hangs in the balance.
In the main event of UFC on ESPN 50, Cory Sandhagen showcased his dominance over five rounds against Rob Font. However, his grappling-oriented approach did not win him many new fans.

Despite the mixed reception to his performance, Sandhagen’s display of a new element in his game highlights his potential as a rising talent in the bantamweight division. Fans and analysts alike will be eagerly watching his future fights to see how he continues to evolve.
