Penne Details Potential Career-Ending USADA Suspension Former UFC women’s strawweight title challenger Jessica Penne has fallen on hard times of late and things may even get worse for the veteran heading into the new year. Penne, 36, is currently battling United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for a violation that would sideline her for four years. It’s an incredibly amount of time, especially for a veteran who hasn’t competed since April 2017. While Penne has been a professional fighter for over 13 years and has experienced all the ups and downs the sport of MMA has to offer, her recent string of bad luck is one for the ages. It all started back in May of 2017 when Penne was informed she tested positive for anabolic steroids during an out-of-competition drug test that screened her biological passport. Penne professed her innocence but ultimately had to serve the suspension from the sidelines. Once cleared to compete, Penne was booked to fight Jodie Esquibel at UFC on ESPN+ 8 in Sunrise, Florida. Penne was eventually removed from the bout and replaced by veteran fighter Angela Hill. The reason for Penne’s withdrawal was originally traced back to an ankle injury suffered in training, but now it seems like there’s more to the story. “The reason I was pulled was because of an extremely low level of stanozolol was found in my system (picogram levels),” wrote Penne in a passionate Instagram post earlier today (shown below). “My heart sank… after everything I had gone through by complying and staying quite (sic) just to get my shot back, this happened.” In case anyone forgot the treasure we may lose.... (Upon further review...not Penne but still nice) If this is true, FUCK USADA and RIP Penne ass. Your glutes were poetry in motion.
