UFC 188: Velasquez vs. Werdum UFC Fight Night: Jędrzejczyk vs. Penne UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Romero

UFC Fight Night: Jędrzejczyk vs. Penne (also known as UFC Fight Night 69) was a mixed martial arts event held on June 20, 2015, at O2 World in Berlin, Germany.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was expected to be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between former title challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira.[2] However, Gustafsson pulled out of the bout on May 1 due to an injury. In turn, Teixeira was removed from the card entirely and was rescheduled to face Ovince Saint Preux on August 8, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 73.[3] Subsequently, a UFC Women's Strawweight Championship bout between current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and former Invicta FC Atomweight champion Jessica Penne was announced as the new event headliner.[4][5]

Makwan Amirkhani was expected to face Diego Rivas at the event.[6] However, shortly after the bout was announced, Rivas was pulled from the fight due to undisclosed reasons. Amirkhani remained on the card to face Masio Fullen.[7]

A welterweight bout between Sérgio Moraes and Peter Sobotta was originally booked for UFC Fight Night: Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop 2. However, the bout was cancelled due to Sobotta being injured. Moraes remained on the card against a different opponent. The fight was later rescheduled for this event.[8] On June 9, the fight was scrapped once again as Moraes pulled out for undisclosed reasons. He was replaced by promotional newcomer Steve Kennedy.[9]

A light heavyweight bout between Nikita Krylov and Marcos Rogério de Lima was briefly linked to this event. However the pairing was moved a week later to UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Romero.[10]

Derek Brunson was expected to face Krzysztof Jotko at the event. However, Brunson pulled out of the fight on June 9 citing a rib injury and was briefly replaced by Uriah Hall.[11] Three days after the booking, Hall was removed due to an alleged visa issue. In turn, Jotko was removed from the card entirely.[12]

Mike Wilkinson was expected to face Alan Omer at the event. However, Wilkinson suffered a shoulder injury and was removed from the card. Wilkinson was replaced by promotional newcomer Arnold Allen.[13]
