Andrade started to do some damage in the third round of the fight, landing a couple of big right hands that nailed Namajunas, who was bleeding from the nose. The fight got exciting in the final round with body fighters doing damage.
Two judges scored the fight 29-28 for Namajunas, and the third had it 29-28 for Andrade. The two fighters have now split their two bouts as Andrade won their fight at UFC 237 last year in Brazil.
