Gustafsson withdraws; Jedrzejczyk vs Penne set for Berlin main event


Light-heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson has been forced to withdraw from the Berlin main event bout against Glover Teixeira due to injury.

Instead, strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Jessica Penne will serve as the main event and will be Joanna’s first title defence since capturing the title by second round TKO from Carla Esparza back in March 2015 at UFC 185 in Dallas, Texas.

Jedrzejczyk is undefeated in her professional career, with 9 wins and holds an impressive decision victory over highly touted Claudia Gadelha.

Former Invicta 105lbs champion Penne appear on The Ultimate Fighter 21 and secured wins over Aisling Daly and Randa Markos during the show.

The extend of Gustafsson’s injury is unclear at this time.
