Tatiana Suarez Earns Conor McGregor's Approval with Dominant Submission Win over Jessica Andrade at UFC Nashville

Conor McGregor praises Tatiana Suarez's dominant victory and predicts she will become a future UFC champion.

Tatiana Suarez's recent victory against Jessica Andrade has caught the attention of MMA icon Conor McGregor. The highly-anticipated match took place at the UFC Nashville event on August 5, 2023, where Suarez showcased her dominance in the strawweight division.

Throughout the fight, Suarez displayed her skills both on the feet and on the ground, outperforming the dangerous KO artist Andrade. In the second round, Suarez secured a submission victory with a guillotine choke, solidifying her win.

After the fight, the UFC Europe Twitter account praised Suarez's performance, suggesting that it would solidify her position as a top-five fighter in the women's strawweight division. McGregor, in response to the tweet, expressed his admiration for Suarez and even hinted at her potential to become a future UFC champion.

In a now-deleted tweet, McGregor wrote, "This woman is very, very good. UFC Champion material 100%!" This endorsement from McGregor holds weight, considering his status as a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion.

Although McGregor has been out of action since his leg injury in July 2021, he recently served as a coach on the UFC's TUF reality show alongside Michael Chandler. Speculation suggests that McGregor's comeback fight could be against Chandler, but it may be postponed until 2024.

Suarez's return to the octagon in February 2023 marked the end of a three-and-a-half-year injury hiatus. In her comeback fight, she defeated Montana De La Rosa via second-round submission in a flyweight bout. Her victory over Andrade further solidifies her comeback and her aspirations to become a UFC champion.

During her post-fight interview with UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping, Suarez expressed her determination to continue improving. She acknowledged the long layoff and emphasized her goal of becoming a UFC champion.

Bisping also highlighted Suarez's victories over current or former UFC champions such as Carla Esparza, Alexa Grasso, and Jessica Andrade. Suarez had previously stated her belief in becoming a two-division champion, and she reiterated this ambition, stating, "I absolutely believe that I have the tools to be a two-division champion. Tonight, I just wanted to focus on the striking part; get comfortable in the cage because I was off for so long."

Tatiana Suarez's impressive win against Jessica Andrade has not only earned her recognition from the UFC but also the seal of approval from Conor McGregor. With her dominant performance and aspirations for greatness, Suarez is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the women's strawweight division.
