The event will be headlined by the first-ever title fight on UFC Fight Pass as UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk makes her first title defense and puts her undefeated record on the line against the challenger, Jessica Penne. In the night’s semi-main event, it is a battle of ranked featherweight fighters as Dennis Siver takes on Tatsuya Kawajiri.
Everyone made weight with no issues. Both the champion and the challenger came in a pound under the 115-pound title fight allowance, and had an intense face-off with Jedrzejczyk and Penne talking a lot of trash to each other.
