UFC Fight Night 198: Joanne Calderwood vs. Talia Santos Betting Information
Joanne Calderwood has been on a roller coaster ride for her career for the past years. She has not won twice in a row or lost back-to-back. Her most recent opponent was against Lauren Murphy and that fight in UFC 264 ended in a controversial split decision. Calderwood’s dream was to go high enough for a title fight but she hopes that ship has not sailed. This is going to be an important win for her as a win will get her closer to earning a title shot. “Jojo” has 15 victories in the pro ranks and lost six as well. Most of her victories came from the judges’ scorecards but she also can put down an opponent with her power.
Talia Santos had a rocky start in her career in the UFC losing to Mara Romero Borella during her debut fight in UFC Fight Night 144 and suffering her first professional career loss. The potential that was seen by Dana White during the Tuesday Night Contender Series did not show up until her next match against Molly McCann. The Brazilian fighter took the fight to the judges’ scorecards and prevailed. She then moved forward to do the same against Gillian Robertson and Roxanne Modafferi. Another win against a top 5 fighter will help Santos speed up her chances for an early title shot.
