UFC women’s strawweight Joanne Calderwood issued a statement following her unanimous decision win over Jessica Eye at UFC 257. In the pre-fight to the pair’s pay-per-view main card bout at UFC 257, Calderwood promised to punch Eye in the face, and she accomplished all that and more in the fight. The Las Vegas-trained fighter took it to Eye for the full 15 minutes, punching and kicking her all over en route to a unanimous decision win. It was a big fight for Calderwood, who lost in upset fashion to Jennifer Maia in her last fight. She needed a good fight against Eye to prove her worth to the champion Valentina Shevchenko, and she did that. With the win over Eye, Calderwood is back to being a title contender.
