UFC champion Jessica Andrade has just commented on photos that have leaked from her OnlyFans over the past few days. These personal photos have been shared widely on social media, but the MMA fighter has taken it all in her stride as she shares just how much she has enjoyed using the platform to make a bit of extra cash.
Meet the Brazilian UFC fighter
Jessica Andrade, aka Bate Estaca, is a Brazilian MMA fighter and UFC champion.
She was born on 25 September 1991 in Umuarama, Parana, and is 29 years old. While only slight, with a height of 5ft 1.5in and a weight of 57kg, she is a champion in the UFC’s women’s flyweight category, and was previously the women’s straw-weight champion.
Her parents Julio and Neusa were both farmers and she grew up helping them on the farm alongside her brother Fernando. She then worked delivering medicine for a drug store.

However, Andrade always excelled in sports, growing up playing soccer and futsal. She originally wanted to become a professional soccer player, and was even offered a place with a club in Sao Paulo, but her parents did not want her to move.
After this disappointment Andrade took up Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and began her MMA career. She made her official MMA debut on 6 September 2011.
Jessica Andrade reacts to OnlyFans leak
Jessica Andrade’s photos from her private OnlyFans account have recently leaked online. However, the Brazilian fighter has said that she expected her photos to leak at some point:
“I’ve seen that happen to other fighters as well… I wasn’t upset because I did all this knowing that it would leak eventually.”
The Brazilian fighter chose to join OnlyFans a few months ago after her wife, Fernanda Gomes, suggested she could make a bit of extra cash on the platform after they moved to Las Vegas.

Since then Andrade has said that she has paid off her car and has also managed to save six or seven months of rent in advance. She has also used the money to support her and her wife’s family back in Brazil, including beginning to renovate her mum’s house.
Andrade has also said: “If I had done [those photos] against my will, it would’ve been different”. However, she has also said that she has been very happy using the platform alongside her UFC career.
Who is Jessica Andrade’s wife?
Jessica Andrade’s wife is Fernanda Gomes. In 2017, after losing to Jonna Jedrezeczyk in the ring, Andrade proposed to Gomes in an adorable ring-side proposal.
While little is known about Gomes, it is clear that she shares a love for Jiu Jitsu and martial arts with her wife. However, the couple prefer to keep their relationship fairly private and rarely post about each other on their social media accounts.
The pair got married in 2019 in a ceremony in their new hometown of Las Vegas. They have also shared that they are looking to start a family sometime soon.
