Andrade Makes 115-Pound Debut Against Penne

 

Brazilian bantamweight contender Jessica Andrade will test the waters in the strawweight division on June 4 in Los Angeles, as she takes on former world title challenger Jessica Penne in a UFC 199 bout at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

In the main event, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, Luke Rockhold defends his UFC middleweight title against Chris Weidman. In the co-featured bout, Dominick Cruz defends his UFC bantamweight crown against Urijah Faber.

Winner of four of her last six bouts, a stretch that includes victories over Rosi Sexton, Raquel Pennington, Larissa Pacheco and Sarah Moras, the 24-year-old Andrade will make her strawweight debut against Ultimate Fighter 20 standout Penne, a former Invicta FC strawweight titleholder who has won two of her last three bouts.
