UFC Fight Night 69 took a major shakeup earlier this week when Alexander Gustafsson was forced to pull out of his fight with Glover Teixeira. Gus’ injury not only pulled him off the card, but Teixeira as well and a new main event was announced.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be defending her UFC Strawweight Championship for the first time against Jessica Penne! Penne is coming off a split decision victory over Randa Markos and she is hoping to dethrone the champion.
Dennis Siver will also be fighting Tatsuya Kawajiri in a bout which was bumped up to the co main-event of the evening. Kawajiri will be making his long awaited return to the octagon as he looks to bounce back from a loss he suffered at the hands of Clay Guida in April 2014.
