UFC fighter Jessica Penne has seen the last three years of her professional MMA career taken away from her due to ongoing issues with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). The last step that Penne can take to clear her name and resume a successful professional MMA career is to take USADA to court.
Penne’s management team at Sucker Punch Entertainment has decided to launch a Go Fund Me page to help raise funds for a potential legal battle against USADA.
The following was posted by Sucker Punch Entertainment on the Go Fund Me page:
I am setting up this campaign on behalf of my client, Jessica Penne. Jessica is a UFC strawweight who has been wrongly suspended for the last 3 years by USADA for claims that are proven invalid. She served the suspension but again has been accused of a violation in which her along with the help of the UFC have found to be a mistake. She spent all of her remaining savings on the testing of products to fight and prove her innocence which paid off (as the tests came back in her favor). She now has all of the paperwork that proves her innocence but is left in the position to have to fight USADA head on in court. This campaign is set up to help raise the money to cover the legal fees and save her career before its to late. From here team here at SuckerPunch Entertainment we thank everyone for their support and we are ready to fight this and get her back in competition.
Sucker Punch Entertainment is looking to raise $40,000 for Penne’s legal defense and in just about a days time, a total of $5,360 has been raised.
