GLASGOW – With a day to go before her fight, Joanne Calderwood’s UFC-Glasgow appearance got off to a rough start.
Calderwood (11-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC), who meets strawweight Cynthia Calvillo (5-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 113 co-headliner, was the only fighter who missed weight at today’s early and official weigh-ins.
Calderwood was the final fighter to weigh in during the two-hour window. She stripped naked to make herself as light as possible, but she still was two pounds over over the 116-pound limit while looking drained on the scale.

Calderwood has been fined 20 percent of her purse, which goes to Calvillo. The bout, though, will continue as a 118-pound catchweight fight.
UFC Fight Night 113 takes place at SSE Hydro in Glasgow with a daytime card that airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
Calderwood, a 30-year-old Scottish fighter who’s perhaps best suited for the newly announced 125-pound flyweight division, will still be the clear crowd favorite on Sunday (though Calvillo is the -200 favorite at the sports books).
