Joanne Calderwood, Lauren Murphy to Square Off at UFC 263 on June 12 – MMA Root



A women’s flyweight title fight is ready for UFC 263, as Joanne Calderwood will start with Lauren Murphy on June 12.

MMAjunkie.com was the first to mention the couple. UFC 263 focuses on a rematch of a flyweight championship match between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno. The card has no official location or place.

Calderwood was victorious in its first appearance of 2021, highlighting former title challenger Jessica Mati at UFC 257 on January 23rd. The 34-year-old Scotsman is 7-5 in the UFC competition, with remarkable victories for Andrea Lee, Ariane Lipski, Valerie Letourneau and Seo Hee Ham.

Murphy, meanwhile, enters the matchup with Calderwood in a four-fight win at 125kg. Most recently, “Lucky” scored Liliya Shakirova in the second round of UFC 254 last October. Former Invicta FC title holder has also awarded Roxanne Modafferi, Lee and Mara Romero Borella during her current tear.
