Dominant UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk put on quite the show with a third round stoppage of Jessica Penne in the main event of today’s (Sat., June 20, 2015) UFC Fight Night 69 from the O2 World in Berlin, Germany.

Battering and bloodying The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum with a deadly mix of endless power punches, takedown defense, and Muay Thai elbows and knees, Jedrzejczyk picked up her first title defense since she won the belt with a domination of Carla Esparza at March’s UFC 185. Not surprisingly, she also picked up $50,000 for the event’s “Fight of the Night” bonus along with Penne for her efforts.

The two $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonuses went to fighters on the preliminary card, with rising prospect Arnold Allen, who earned the bonus for his third round submission of Alan Omer, and Mairbek Taisumov, who defeated Alan Patrick with a vicious TKO due to ground and pound.
