Fight Night Berlin Predictions: Joanna Jedrzejczyk Beats Jessica Penne By TKO

Es ist das Downes Side! The greatest prediction column this side of the Rhein river. And even if you don’t know the proper Volkssprache, that won’t prevent you from enjoying Fight Night Berlin.

Live from the O2 Arena in Berlin, straw-weight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk tries to continue her reign of terror over the 115-pound division and copy editors. Standing in her way will be former Invicta champ and greatest pasta-based MMA fighter Jessica Penne. In the co-main event of the evening, the guy that fought Conor McGregor that one time (aka Dennis Siver) faces Tatsuya Kawajiri.

Grab some currywurst, it’s fight time!

The main card opens in the lightweight division with Nick Hein and Lukasz Sajewski. Fighting out of Cologne, Germany, (the best smelling city in the world), Hein looks to bounce back from a loss against James Vick his last time out. A counter striker, Hein has a 100 percent takedown defense rate. A strong prospect from Poland, Sajewski makes his UFC debut. A capable boxer, he likes to drag opponents down and work from top position.

As much as I’d like to root for someone nicknamed “Wookiee,” I can’t do it. It’s not because I have any ill-will toward my friends from Kashyyyk. It’s just that I think he’ll do about as well as his brethren in the Mandalorian Wars. He’ll put up an initial fight, but the firepower of Hein will be too much to handle. Hein doesn’t have breakaway speed or power, but he’ll do enough over the course of three rounds to beat Sajewski to the unanimous decision. Hopefully next time the Pole achieves a victory like the Battle of Yuuzhan’tar.
