Returning to the Octagon for the first time in nearly two years, former strawweight title challenger Jessica Penne will battle Albuquerque's Jodie Esquibel on February 17 in Phoenix, Arizona.
The UFC Fight Night card will air live on ESPN from Talking Stick Resort Arena.
A former Invicta FC atomweight champion, Penne moved ten pounds south to compete in the strawweight division on The Ultimate Fighter in 2014, and she quickly earned a 2015 UFC title shot against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Penne has hit a rough patch since that bout, but she expects to get back to her winning ways against the veteran Esquibel, who hopes to snap a two-fight losing skid at Penne's expense this February.
