UFC Fight Night 198 Predictions: Joanne Calderwood vs. Taila Santos breakdown, betting odds

UFC Fight Night 198 will include a face-off between “The Ultimate Fighter” veteran Scotland’s Joanne Calderwood and Contender Series alumni Taila Santos of Brazil. Both women are at high points in their careers, while Calderwood has alternated wins and losses over her last few, this came at a time where she was next in line for a title shot. A short-notice fight derailed that immediate plan but she is always a fight or two away from being the next potential challenger.
