Joanne Calderwood vs. Jessica Andrade added to UFC 203 in Cleveland

UFC 203 has just got an explosive female bout as Scotland’s Joanne Calderwood takes on Jessica Andrade in Cleveland. There is no news as to what weight-class this fight will be contested at as Calderwood recently competed at 125lbs whilst Andrade recently moved down from 115lbs from 135lbs.

The UFC Europe announced the bout on twitter.

Following a win over Cortney Casey at UFC Fight Night 72: Bisping vs. Leites in her home country of Scotland, Calderwood (10-1 MMA) had two scheduled bouts cancelled. The first against Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night  72 where Rawlings suffered an injury and then against Paige VanZant at UFC Fight Night 80 in a headlining role before Calderwood pulled out of the card with an injury. ‘Jo Jo’ returned from injury to face Valérie Létourneau at UFC Fight Night 89: MacDonald vs. Thompson in the first ever UFC women’s flyweight matchup. Calderwood dominated the striking exchanges, earning a third-round TKO victory.

Andrade (13-5 MMA) recently moved down to stawweight following a flyweight bout outside of the UFC. Andrade competed at 135lbs during her first stint in the UFC but dropped down to face Jessica Penne
at UFC 199: Rockhold vs. Bisping 2 where she earned an impressed second round TKO victory.
