Must Watch Jedrzejczyk-Penne Weigh-In Video

Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (9-0) and contender Jessica Penne (12-2) have been needling one another all week before the title bout tomorrow night at UFC Berlin, but they just had their weigh-in, and things got even more heated – and physical.

They were forehead-to-forehead for their staredown, and then exchanged “gifts.” Jedrzejczyk handed Penne two pieces of pasta-inspired bling which Penne blithely tossed away, and then Penne gave Jedrzejczyk a “Lord of the Rings” ring, referring to Penne’s jibe calling Jedrzejczyk “Gollum” earlier in the week. Words were exchanged, and Jedrzejczyk slapped Penne hand away before cooler heads intervened.

“It’s gonna be a war,” said Jedrzejczyk as she walked away.

We certainly hope so.



UFC Berlin airs on Fight Pass, with prelims beginning at 3 pm ET/12 pm PT.
