After struggling to crack the title picture at bantamweight, Jessica Andrade drops to 115 pounds to face Jessica Penne at UFC 199 on June 4 in Los Angeles. UFC officials announced the bout on Thursday.

Andrade (13-5) started strong in the Octagon, winning three of her first four fights. She has since gone 1-2, thus making the decision to give strawweight a go. She’ll be dropping a full 20 pounds to make the shift in weight classes.

That closes out the card with 13 fights.

Luke Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman - for Middleweight Championship
Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber - for Bantamweight Championship
Dustin Poirier vs. Bobby Green
Evan Dunham vs. Leonardo Santos
Kevin Casey vs. Elvis Mutapcic
Jonathan Wilson vs. Luiz Henrique
"Maestro" Dong Hyun Kim vs. Polo Reyes
Sean Strickland vs. Tom Breese
John Makdessi vs. Mehdi Baghdad
B.J. Penn vs. Dennis Siver
Clay Guida vs. Brian Ortega
Dan Henderson vs. Hector Lombard
Jessica Andrade vs. Jessica Penne

I like this card, especially for it's good price. The main card will probably be the 2 title fights with Penn, Hendo and Poirier as the other 3 ppv fights.

She was undersized at 135 but 20 pounds is a lot of weight for a frame that small.

She better be ready to fight a lengthy, precision style striker...Penne could outpoint her in this one and that would not look good for her at this point.

Agreed. I'm skeptical to say the least.
