Jedrzejczyk, Penne Set To Headline Main Card For UFC Fight Night 69

Posted by on 6/11/2015 9:09:34 PM

The UFC is set to make its return to Berlin, Germany and while an injury to Alexander Gustafsson prevented him from taking on Glover Teixeira in the main event the promotion didn’t have to do much scrambling to find a replacement with the UFC Women’s Strawweight title bout between the undefeated champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Jessica Penne. Here is a look at the main card for the UFC Fight Night 69 with the best bets for each of the four fights.

Women’s Strawweight Title Fight

(9-0-0) Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Jessica Penne (12-2-0)

Parity has certainly been a problem when it comes to the UFC attempting to promote its women’s divisions and it certainly won’t help them if Jedrzejczyk continues her dominance in this main event fight. Jedrzejczyk survived a split decision win over Claudia Gadelha and then left nothing to chance in her latest bout with a second round TKO win over Carla Esparza for the title. Next up is the 32-year-old Penne who certainly deserves this opportunity but is still considered a major underdog for a reason. Penne did well in lesser promotions before debuting in the UFC with a split decision win over Randa Markos at TUF. But she isn’tready to take down a talented opponent who has looked absolutely dominant in Jedrzejczyk. The substantial juice makes Jedrzejczyk a tough bet to make in any fight but she should be able to find a way to win this bout via stoppage.

Pick: Jedrzejczyk -650

Featherweight Bout

(22-10-0) Dennis Siver vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri (33-8-2)

Siver is coming off a brutal TKO loss to Connor McGregor this past January and he has lost two of his last four fights but he has been put in position to get back in the win column against his next opponent. Kawjiri was able to secure a win over Sean Soriano in his UFC debut via submission but he was beaten up pretty good by Clay Guida in his last fight and looks overmatched heading in to this bout.

Pick: Siver -200

Welterweight Bout

(14-4-1) Peter Sobotta vs. Steve Kennedy (22-6-0)

With Sergio Moraes out it will be Kennedy taking this fight against Sobotta on short notice and it will be very interesting to see how long he can hang around. Sobotta has won six straight fights including a decision win over Pawel Pawlak in his return to the UFC and it’s very clear he is a different fighter than he was in his first stint with this promotion. Kennedy is a talented fighter that won’t be a pushover but Sobotta should be able to find a way to extend his win streak in this tilt.

Pick: Sobotta -260

Lightweight Bout

(11-2-0) Nick Hein vs. Lukasz Sajewski (13-0-0)

Hein is the Elsdorf, Germany-native that is being relied on to try and stop the undefeated run of Sajewski as the home favorite in this bout but that might be too much to ask of him coming off of an underwhelming decision loss to James Vick. Sajewski has taken no prisoners while pushing his win streak to 13 and he will prove he is ready for the spotlight with a win in his UFC debut.

Pick: Sajewski +130
