Doctors rule Jessica Penne out of tonight’s fight versus Jodie Esquibel

First reported by Ariel Hewlani For ESPN on Twitter, a strawweight bout between Jessica Penne and Jodie Esquibel has been removed from tonight’s card just hours before the show starts.

Officials say it was the doctors decision to pull Penne from the bout due to an undisclosed injury.

The bout was scheduled to be Penne’s return to action after an over 18-month lay-off.

This also marks the second UFC fight for Esquibel that has been cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled fight time.

Stay tuned for more.

    1. nope ! Sprained her ankle really bad the morning of the fight , doing the kind of training you shouldn’t be doing on Fight Day !

  1. jessica is now on the wrong side of 35 and isn’t really in demand, and we can never be sure if she’ll injure out of her fights or piss hot. She needs to stop being an instagram hizzo and get serious about all this. I think she is enchanted with her own looks, with all those pooched lips selfies, but looking more of an again lady than a spring chicken (thining skin, lines, jowls despite plastic surgery on her trademark schnoz). And all these intellectual excuses why she is losing all her fights (“i wasn’t myself in there,” etc)
    Who knows how much pain and money Jodie Esquibel spent on training camp, and will have to pay all that again for her next fight. I want to see jessica beaten to bits in her next fight, whether its by jodie esquibel or by another. yeah… she has no future as a title contender, so…UFC should match her up with a hungry young powerful tiger for the express purpose of getting a highlight reel KTFO
