Due to Alexander Gustafsson being out of his match with Glover Teixeira as the main event of the UFC’s June 20th event in Berlin, Germany, a new main event is booked as Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her newly won 115 title against former InvictaFC atomweight champ Jessica Penne. The news came out Friday.

Jedrzejczyk (9-0) TKOed Carla Esparza to win the belt on March. Much speculation was around who was going to be the champion’s next challenger as several has tossed their hat in the cage.

Former InvictaFC champ Penne (12-2) was set to face Juliana Lima at UFC Fight Night 67 in a few weeks, but got the call she has been waiting for. Her only two losses were to Zoila Frausto and newly signed UFC fighter Michelle Waterson. Since her loss to Waterson, she has won back to back fights, including a Fight of the Night performance against Randa Markos.

The fight will air on UFC Fight Pass June 20.
