After losing her main event fight at the UFC Vegas 69 on Saturday night, former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade, who previously quit OnlyFans, has blamed her 'breasts slipping out of her top' for the shock defeat against Erin Blanchfield. Andrade was on a three-fight winning streak when she stepped into the octagon to face Erin Blanchfield in the flyweight category, however, the Brazilian's shock defeat also ended her chances for the title shot.

The 31-year-old Andrade featured in the fight against Blanchfield on short notice in place of Talia Santos. With less than two minutes into the second round, Andrade tapped out to a rear naked choke submission.
In a post-fight interview, Andrade blamed her wardrobe malfunction for her loss as she lost her focus from the fight moments before the submission. "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."

She explained, "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 gameplan. 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."
After defeating Andrade, Blanchfield is now likely to face UFC women's flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko in her next outing.
