Fight Theater: Jessica Penne

Former Invicta FC atomweight champion Jessica Penne took one step closer to making history after she defeating Aisling Daly in their quarterfinal match of “The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will be Crowned” women’s strawweight title tournament. If she wins the whole enchilada, she will not only become the first UFC women’s strawweight champion but also be the first fighter to hold world titles in the UFC and Invicta Fighting Championships.

I’ve enjoyed watching Penne’s progress over the years and I see her coming out of this tournament as one of the top fighters in the UFC’s women’s 115-pound weight class.

Below are some videos of Penne’s triumphs.
