The UFC 203 main card kicks off with a strawweight contest that might determine the next challenger: Jessica Andrade versus Joanne Calderwood. Given that Andrade is a volume-puncher and Calderwood a technical Muay Thai specialist, expect someone to get hurt in this one.
Taller, and with legs about a mile long, Calderwood goes to work trying to chip away at the Brazilian with kicks. Andrade counters with a takedown,and when the Scottswoman gets up, Andrade hoists her up and dumps her back to the canvas. Some ground and pound ensues, and when Calderwood tries to sink a triangle, Andrade slams her hard to the canvas. She may have a cut above her eye leaking blood everywhere, but Andrade is in the driver’s seat. The end comes when Calderwood exposes her neck trying to get up, and Andrade latches on with a guillotine, securing the tap out.
Results: Jessica Andrade def. Joanne Calderwood via Submission (Guillotine) at 4:38, R1
