Joanne Calderwood to Meet Jessica Eye at UFC Event on Jan. 23

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 18, 2020


A women’s flyweight clash pitting Joanne Calderwood against Jessica Eye is on tap for an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Jan. 23.

MMA DNA was first to report the matchup. The card, which is expected to be UFC 257, doesn’t have an official location or venue but is rumored to be headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier.

Calderwood was in position for a title shot but elected not to wait on Valentina Shevchenko to heal after their initial booking was canceled. That cost the Scottish veteran, as she was submitted by Jennifer Maia in the opening round at UFC Fight Night 173, allowing Maia to earn No. 1 contender’s status.

A former title challenger, Eye is coming off a loss to Cynthia Calvillo in the UFC on ESPN 10 headliner on June 13. After a 3-0 stretch in 2018, the Ohioan has lost two of her last three Octagon appearances.
