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.
