Jessica
Penne
will return following a 20-month USADA suspension to
square off against Hannah
Goldy
at UFC
260
.


MMAjunkie.com
was first to report the strawweight booking. UFC
260 takes place on March 27 and is headlined by a heavyweight title
rematch between Stipe
Miocic
and Francis
Ngannou
.

Penne was sanctioned after testing positive for metabolites of
stanozolol, 16β-hydroxystanozolol and 3’-hydroxystanozolol,
synthetic steroids that are banned both in and out of competition.
An initial four-year suspension was
eventually reduced
when the anti-doping organization determined
that Penne did not intentionally take the substance to gain an
advantage. The former Invicta FC atomweight queen returns to the
Octagon on a three-fight losing streak, which includes a decision
setback to Danielle
Taylor
in her most recent outing in April 2017.

Goldy, meanwhile, earned a UFC contract on Season 3 of Dana White’s
Contender Series. She suffered her first professional defeat in six
bouts at UFC on ESPN 5, where she dropped a unanimous decision
against Miranda
Granger
.
