Thursday September 17, 2015-– Big fight was just announced by the great one himself Dana White. The #6 ranked Women’s Straw weight contender in the world Paige VanZant (6-1) takes on the #8 ranked fighter in the world Joanne Calderwood (10-1). With both fighters coming off big victories, and quick turnarounds, they step back into the octagon on December 10th live and exclusively on UFC Fightpass.
Joanne Calderwood got a big victory in her last fight against Cortney Casey, Earning fight of the night honors JoJo has placed her self back in prime position to climb up the ranks and get a shot at the title. Vanzant is by far the biggest name that Calderwood has had to face. Some Might say that she is the more established fighter of the two but sometimes experience doesn’t always pay off. With a loss in her previous fight before Casey, Jojo was submitted by Mayna Moroz in the first round. After learning from her mistakes and earning the impressive victory over Casey, it makes you think what Jojo are we gonna get on December 1oth.
12 Gauge Paige is coming off a big victory over Alex Chambers at UFC191 and is currently riding a 3 fight win streak. As fast as she is climbing up the ranks, Doubters continue to think she is not ready for a shot at the title. VanZant who trains with Team Alpha Male has set the bar high on her training. Training with Team Alpha Male has its perks, as she trains with the UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw, Urijah Faber, and Chad Mendes. Being surrounded by some of the best that the UFC has to offer can really help your game out as she has stated before that training with the boys gives her a bit of an advantage. Taking this fight shows that VanZant is ready to take that next step and get even close to the top 5.
These two straw weights are no doubt some of the best Women’s fighters in all of MMA. Both women need to come out hot and execute. Both need to do what they did in their last fights and certify the early dominance and pick their poison when the opportunity occurs. A win here will get some title talk but with the top 5 already stacked its gonna take a few more wins before either of these fighters can say there title contenders. Calderwood Needs to stick her strengths and show up or VanZant will put her down before the blink of an eye. Vanzant needs to come out like a bullet from a 12 gauge shotgun and put Calderwood on her toes. Maker her think twice and capitalize. With an already stacked week of fights VanZant and Claderwood will kick things off with a bang i guarantee it.
