  • Katlyn Chookagian (UFC 238)
  • Maryna Moroz (UFC Fight Night 64)
  • Jessica Andrade (UFC 203)

Calderwood’s Keys to Victory:

She’s had been always a high-volume kickboxer and a rangy player. Mostly all the Brazilian players fight in one way but Calderwood fights in a combination and she works from the clinch. She’s very versatile which can work in her favor while fighting with Maia tomorrow.

Calderwood better suited with land takedowns unlike Blonde fighters, If Maia is looking or success then Calderwood will be advised to drop beneath a punch and go for the top position. Similarly clinching would be a bad move here since it’s an area of strength for both the players.

Jennifer Maia:

Maia holds a record of 17-6.

Victories of Maia:

  • Alexis Davis (UFC Fight Night 148)
  • Roxanne Modafferi (UFC on ESPN 4, Invicta FC 19)
  • Vanessa Porta (Inicta FC 16)

Defeats:

  • Liz Carmouche (UFC Fight Night 133)
  • Katlyn Chookagian (UFC 244)

Maia’s key to Victory:

Maia is a representative of the very famous Chute Boxe Academy, she fights with aggression whenever she gets in the ring. She plays with a combination of punches-in-bunches and occasionally capping with a kick of clinch knee.

For winning in this match Maia needs to continuously put the pressure on Calderwood. Additionally, she needs to catch up on the kicks of her opponent.

Calderwood is taking a definite risk in this battle, as there is nothing to win other than a paycheck. She could have been ready for the next title instead of getting into this fight.
