Digs deep to get hand raised
September 7, 2019
Calderwood defeated Andrea Lee via split decision (30-27, 28-29, 29-28) at The Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Calderwood seemed outgunned by the strength and wrestling of her opponent in the clinch in Round 1, but it looked as though her opponent faded in the desert heat, which allowed JoJo to stay on her feet and establish her striking. Calderwood dropped a controversial decision to Katlyn Chookagian in June but seems to be finding a late-career surge, having won three of her last four fights. She improves to 14-4 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.
Booked for UFC 242
July 3, 2019
Calderwood will take on Andrea Lee in a flyweight bout at UFC 242 on Sept. 7, John Morgan of MMA Junkie reports.
Calderwood is coming off a loss just under a month ago to Katlyn Chookagian via unanimous decision at UFC 238. That put an end to what was a two-fight winning streak and she has now dropped three of her last five UFC bouts. Calderwood should be in for another competitive outing with both women ranked in the top 15 of the flyweight division.
Fails to sway the judges
June 8, 2019
Calderwood lost to Katlyn Chookagian via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 238 on Saturday in Chicago.
Calderwood was able to score with her leg kicks, but Chookagian got the better of her in terms of head strikes. In the end, the judges appreciated Chookagian's work much more. Calderwood had won back-to-back fights coming into this one, but the loss stops any and all momentum.
Fighting Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 238
March 11, 2019
Calderwood is scheduled to fight Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 238 on June 8 in Chicago, Phil Thompson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Calderwood is going to go into the bout with more momentum behind her after winning her last two bouts against Ariane Lipski and Kalindra Faria, while Chookagian is coming off a narrow loss in her most recent outing against Jessica Eye. Both women are ranked in the top 10, however, so it's likely going to be a close fight in the women's flyweight in Chicago.
Dominates Ariane Lipski as underdog
January 19, 2019
Calderwood defeated Ariane Lipski via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brooklyn.
It was a thorough, dominant effort for Calderwood as an underdog. She controlled the early stages of the fight on the mat and she did an exceptional job of limiting Lipski's time and space on the feet. JoJo has looked like a different fighter since her move to Syndicate MMA in 2018. Calderwood has always been a solid striker and her ground game looks stronger than ever. A winner of back-to-back fights, JoJo could be primed for a breakout in 2019.
