    One day after revealing her struggles with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Jessica Penne is turning to the public to help aid her battle against the UFC’s official anti-doping partner.

    With Penne (12-5 MMA, 3-1 UFC) facing a potential four-year suspension for what USADA has labeled a second infraction of the UFC Anti-Doping Program, the former Invicta FC atomweight champion and onetime UFC strawweight title challenger Friday revealed she doesn’t have the money it would take to battle the agency in court and said the sanction would essentially end her career. Now her reps at SuckerPunch Entertainment have launched a GoFundMe campaign in an effort for Penne to have her day in court.

    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 it's too late. From here at SuckerPunch Entertainment we thank everyone for their support and we are ready to fight this and get her back in competition.

    Thank you,
    Team Penne

    Penne’s campaign has an initial goal of $40,000, an amount she indicated in her initial statement she believes it will take to cover the legal fees necessary to prove her case.

    People are starving and dying and this idiot donates 1,000 for Penne to wipe her tears with.

    it feels good when you call something and it happens, knew as soon as I read the open letter she was fishing for a go fund me, there are some folks in real trouble in your own town or city and anyone that donates even a $ to Penne needs a punt to the gonads

    So she's been suspended for 3 years.
    And has been scheduled to fight and backed out due to injury during that time.
    How's that work?

    I mean it sounds like she got a really bad string of luck and I feel bad for her, but at the same time, am I supposed to be that upset someone had to drive for Lyft?

    There are millions of people doing that these days.

    It's not hard labor in a mine.
