Former Invicta FC atomweight champion Jessica Penne moved up a weight class to appear on The Ultimate Fighter 20 as a strawweight. She advanced to the semifinals before losing to the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight titleholder Carla Esparza.
Riding back-to-back wins, the 32-year-old will attempt to capture the UFC title on Saturday when she takes on 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the UFC Fight Night 69 main event in Berlin.
Penne believes her grappling ability will negate Jedrzejczyk’s lethal striking. In fact, Penne predicts that she’ll upset the champion by submission.
