Jessica Andrade vs Jessica Penne added to June 4 UFC show

Jessica Andrade
Brian Martin of the Los Angeles Daily News reported this afternoon that Jessica Andrade vs Jessica Penne has been added to UFC 199 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. For those who don't know, The Forum has recently been renovated. This will be Jessica Andrade's first fight as a Strawweight. She was 4-2 in the UFC as a Bantamweight. After she lost to Raquel Pennington last September, Jessica announced plans to drop to Strawweight. She's short for a Bantamweight but powerful. I'm sure this was suggested by the UFC. On the other hand, Jessica Penne is undersized for a Strawweight. in Invicta, she was Atomweight champ. Last time we saw her in June 2015, UFC Strawweight Champ Joanna Jedrzejczk was punching her lights out. I could see her having problems with Jessica Andrade's power. This fight should be very interesting.
