Jessica Andrade Moves to Strawweight, Meets Jessica Penne at UFC 199

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 14, 2016

Jessica Andrade will make her 115-pound debut against Jessica Penne at UFC 199 on June 4.

Promotion officials confirmed the strawweight bout following an initial report from the Los Angeles Daily News. UFC 199 takes place at the Forum in Los Angeles and is headlined by a middleweight title rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman.

Andrade, 24, posted a 4-3 record at bantamweight since signing with the Las Vegas-based promotion in 2013. Most recently, “Bate Estaca” suffered a second-round submission loss to Raquel Pennington at UFC 191 last September.

Penne, meanwhile, hasn’t competed since taking a brutal beating at the hands of Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a strawweight title bout last June at UFC Fight Night in Berlin. The former Invicta FC titlist is 12-3 as a professional, including a split-verdict against Randa Markos in her Octagon debut.
