Jessica Penne will step in the place of Cheyanne Vlismas to fight against Tabatha Ricci at UFC Vegas 61, aka UFC Fight Night 211 on October 1.
Vlismas withdrew from this match due to unknown reasons, and she will be replaced by Jessica Penne, who will be returning to action.
Jessica Penne is 2-1 in her last three bouts. She won against Lupita Godinez and Karolina Kowalkiewicz but was defeated by Emily Ducote in her most recent outing.
