Sherdog.com confirmed the main card contests with a source close to the event on Tuesday morning.
Penne, 29, has lost just once as a professional, falling to eventual champion Zoila Gurgel in Bellator’s 115-pound tournament two years ago. Since the decision defeat, Penne has won back-to-back fights, topping Amy Davis to close out 2010 before spending 17 months on the sideline. The Californian returned to the cage for Invicta’s inaugural event this past April, earning a third-round technical knockout over Lisa Ellis.
Unbeaten in eight pro fights, Sugiyama, 34, became the Jewels 105-pound champion in December by defeating two opponents in a single night, topping Kikuyo Ishikawa and Misaki Takimoto at 17th Ring. Most recently, “Sugi Rock” took on Yasuko Tamada in a non-title rematch of their 2010 clash under the Valkyrie banner. Sugiyama once again emerged victorious, earning a majority decision over Tamada on May 26.view original article >>
