Jessica Penne turned back the upset effort of Aisling Daly this past Wednesday night, advancing to the semifinals on The Ultimate Fighter.
Penne earned a decision victory after the fight was pushed to a third round. She will meet another teammate in the semis, as Carla Esparza and Tecia Torres collide next week. Also on TUF next Wednesday, Rose Namajunas – the lone Team Gilbert Melendez survivor – faces Joanne Calderwood in the other quarterfinal.
Penne, Randa Markos, Esparza and Torres are all fighting under the guidance of Anthony Pettis.
