Prediction: Jessica Penne vs Emily Ducote | UFC on ABC 3

This weekend’s UFC fight night will feature a match between UFC veteran Jessica Penne and the debuting Emily Ducote. A member of The Ultimate Fighter all the way back in 2014, Penne has been a staple in the division since its creation. Having gone to battle with then-champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in 2015, Penne is also a former belt challenger and is currently ranked #14 in the world. Having a number next to her name is significant as it may offer Ducote a chance with just one bout to enter the top #15 should she win impressively.
