JoannaJedrzejczykThe Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Berlin, Germany this Saturday, June 20th for UFC Fight Night 79: Jędrzejczyk vs Penne. The event will feature 10 bouts in entirety, with a four-fight main card kicking off at 3pm ET and six-fight preliminary card getting going at 12pm ET. All of the action will be live on UFC Fight Pass, and if interested in wagering on the contests, all betting lines will be made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. In the main event of the evening scheduled for five rounds, UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk will defend her title for the first time against former Invicta FC Women’s Atomweight title holder Jessica Penne. This is a fight that was booked when the event’s original headliner Alexander Gustaffson vs Glover Teixeira was removed from the card due to an injury to the Swede. Jędrzejczyk and Penne are both known as entertaining fighters who generally give it their all when entering the cage for mixed martial arts battle. I don’t expect their styles to be any different in this go-around, as I think they will both put it all on the line to walk away with the UFC gold. The champ opened as a -855 favorite over the challenger, with Penne being a +485 underdog. After what I think has been some back and forth action, betting lines have tightened up and sit at a current -700/+500. The co-main event of the evening will be a featherweight battle between a pair of veterans, and action is expected when Germany’s own Dennis Siver takes on Japan’s Tatsuya Kawajiri. In a battle of two veterans looking to return to the win column, one will see his wish come true, while the other goes back for a closer look at the drawing board. Siver opened as a very slight -135 betting favorite in this contest, with the return on Kawajiri being -105. Action has since come in on the hometown favorite, making current betting lines -170/+150. In a welterweight bout, Australia’s Steve Kennedy will be making a short notice promotional debut against German’s own Peter Sobotta. After Sobotta’s original opponent Sergio Moraes pulled out of the bout due to injury, he has set his sights on the Australian. Kennedy will aim to extend his seven fight winning streak to eight, while Sobotta will hope to extend his six fight winning streak to seven. Kennedy opened as a +170 underdog in this bout, with the German being a -230 favorite. Some action has since come in on Sobotta, bringing betting lines to a current +210/-250. Kicking off the main card will be a lightweight match-up between undefeated promotional newcomer Lukasz Sajewski and Germany’s own Nick Hein. In a scrap that could very well be the sleeper for the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, these 155-pounders will be looking to leave it all inside the Octagon in an effort to get their hand raised. Sajewski opened as the underdog in this contest at +135, with the hometown favorite being -175. After what I assume has been slight back and forth action, current betting lines are +135/-155.
