Going the distance: Jessica Penne December 05 2014
AltoLab would like to congratulate Jessica Penne, former Invicta FC atomweight champion & semifinalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 20: A Champion Will Be Crowned” tv show. She edged out Aisling Daly to advance on to the next round of single-elimination strawweight title tournament.
Opting to leave the drama and arguments of the show behind, Penne took her revenge in the cage in a back-and-fourth bout. The close bout was declared a draw after two rounds and went to a sudden victory round. Daly attempted a late takedown with no luck, only to pin Penne for a split second as the bout went to the scorecards.
The final round was scored 10-9 for Penne who takes the unanimous decision win and advances to the “TUF 20” semifinals as a result.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced six match-ups that will be featured on the Dec. 12 The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale fight card at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Two more bouts will be added to the card and the first will feature the winners of the upcoming semifinal matches: Carla Esparza vs. Jessica Penne and Randa Markos vs. Rose Namajunas.
