Jessica Andrade Moves Down To Strawweight, Faces Jessica Penne At UFC 199

Jessica Andrade will give strawweight a go, taking on one-time title contender Jessica Penne at UFC 199 this summer. The Los Angeles Daily News first reported the contest.

Andrade (13-5) has gone 4-3 as a bantamweight in the UFC, including three straight wins at one point. She is just 1-2, though, over her last three, with both defeats coming via submission.

Penne (12-4) is a former Invicta FC champion who advanced to the semifinals of The Ultimate Fighter before falling to eventual champion Carla Esparza. She also suffered a loss to current UFC champion Joanna Jedrzeczyk for the title.

UFC 199 includes Luke Rockhold defending his middleweight title vs. Chris Weidman and Urijah Faber challenging Dominick Cruz for the bantamweight strap.
