UFC Fight Night 69 will be held on June 20, 2015 at O2 World in Berlin, Germany.
The event was expected to be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between former title challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira. However, Gustafsson pulled out of the bout on May 1 due to an injury. In turn, Teixeira was removed from the card entirely. Subsequently, a UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship bout between current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and former Invicta FC Atomweight champion Jessica Penne will now headline the event.
Jędrzejczyk (9-0 MMA) became UFC Strawweight champion in March, following the destruction of former champion Carla Esparza at UFC 185 in Dallas. Prior to this title win, Jędrzejczyk dominated Juliana Lima in her debut en route to a unanimous decision win and followed up with a razor close split decision win over Claudia Gadelha.
Penne (12-2 MMA) was a cast member of season 20 of the Ultimate Fighter. Penne defeated Lisa Ellis and Aisling Daly on the show, eventually losing to Carla Esparza in the semi final. Since the Ultimate Fighter Penne has only fought once inside the octagon. She defeated Randa Markos via split decision in the finale for the TUF show. Penne was expected to fight Julianna Lima at UFC Fight Night: Condit vs, Alves however was pulled from that fight to take part in the main event in Germany.
The co-main event pits Dennis Siver against Japanese MMA legend Tatsuya Kawajiri in a featherweight contest.
