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.

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.

Turns momentum to pick up submission win
August 25, 2018
Calderwood defeated Kalindra Faria via submission (armbar) at 4:57 of Round 1 at UFC Lincoln on Saturday.
Calderwood was taken down early and spent much of the first round on her back, where she was content to try and land elbows as opposed to getting back to her feet. She eventually locked in a head-and-arm triangle from her back, and while it initially looked like Faria would escape, Calderwood used the advantageous position to secure an armbar. WIth just three seconds left in the round, Faria tapped. It appears the move to the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas has helped to make Calderwood a more well-rounded fighter, as this was her first career win by submission. With a recent two-fight losing streak now behind her, a hungry Calderwood asked for another fight before the end of 2018.

Although JoJo sports an 11-3 record professionally, she is just 3-3 in UFC fights and has lost her previous two bouts to Cynthia Calvillo and Jessica Andrade in the past 15 months.
