Joan Calderwood – Jennifer Maya. Forecast and the announcement to fight

This Sunday the UFC will return to Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) to host the sixth tournament without spectators to “UFC APEX”. The event of UFC Fight Night 173 lost the original main event after Irene Aldana was diagnosed COVID-19, and its failed rival, Holly Holm left behind. Instead, the title card we see an intriguing confrontation between the men.

No. 3 ranking of the women’s Flyweight Calderwood will face No. 6 ranking by the Maya in the co-main UFC Fight Night 173. The winner of this bout will have a good chance to then fight with champion Valentina Shevchenko.

Calderwood in this pair is the more experienced fighter, in the UFC it is more than five years. After returning to the current division in 2018, she looked fine, winning Kalindra Faria, Ariane Lipski and Andrea Lee. Only last year’s defeat on points to the phenomenal wrestler Kathleen Calahan a few clouds the overall picture.

The former Invicta FC champion Maia came to the UFC in 2018, and won two victories in four fights. Between losing Liz Karmas and Calagan she defeated Alexis Davis and Roxanne Modafferi.

Forecast for battle

Calderwood Thai fighter who knows how to work with knees and elbows in the clinch. In the front it is very dangerous. Maya is similar in many respects her, she is also strong in Muay Thai.

Perhaps Calderwood better as the shock-worker and she definitely looked better against Curagen. At the same time, the problem of “Jo-Jo” is that Maya is better as Grappler. Tartan in the past have experienced problems on the ground, and Maya holds a black belt in BJJ with five victories submicron in MMA. Jennifer looks like a fighter with a large set of tools that is very important in this very competitive on paper match.
