Jessica Penne wasn’t able to savior her Invicta FC atomweight championship, dropping the title in her first defense to Michelle Waterson. With her first round Submission of Night over Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc at Invicta FC 6, Penne is down for a chance to reclaim her gold but will leave it in the hands of the bosses.
“I want to be next, but it’s whatever Shannon [Knapp] and Janet [Marti] want,” said Penne to Sherdog. “I’m ready to go.”
Penne has been with the promotion since day one and is 3-1 for them. She’s 10-2 with the other loss coming from Zoila Gurgel for Bellator.
Waterson is yet to defend the title and details on the next event aren’t known.
