#4 Jessica Penne and #5 Aisling Daly squared off Wednesday night in Episode 10 of TUF 20.

Since the elimination format, any team chemistry that the teams had is essentially out of the window.

It’s every woman for herself.

Daly got a big boost when fellow countryman “The Notorious” Conor McGregor makes a surprise appearance bearing kind words and a UFC belt.

But would it be enough to dispatch Penne?

Welcome back to The Crossfire.

Andrews: Daly did well in the fist round, using her dirty boxing and making sure the fight stayed on the feet. Penne has a solid ground game and tried to use those dangerous knees, but Daly landed more.

After getting nailed with an overhand right in the second round, Penne made some adjustments, landed some strikes and got some lady luck late with a trip. Penne got the mount, forcing Daly to fight off the rear naked choke for the rest of the round. That meant sudden victory – a decisive third round.

In the third round, Penne landed another early takedown and spent most of the round making Daly defend her submissions. Daly got a late takedown, but couldn’t work enough damage. The winner – Jessica Penne in a competitive bout.

Wiseman: Definitely the best fight of the season. Going into the fight I knew that on the mat it would be all Penne and that has nothing to do with the color BJJ she has. Penne is so flexible that you never know what angle she is coming from. It’s incredible to watch. In the first round Aisling scored takedowns, but was smart to not go to the mat. In the second round Penne scored her own takedown, then dominated. The same happened for the majority of the third round. In the standing and grappling game Aisling exposed her awkward movements, constantly switching stances, and power.

However, Penne was smart to switch things up, close the distance and bring things to an area where she had the advantage. The decision win went to Penne, but as I said, definitely the best fight of the season.
