Joanne Calderwood vs Bec Rawlings added to July 18 UFC show

It was announced today on BT Sport in England that Joanne Calderwood will face Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night 72 July 18 at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. this show will air on Fox Sports 1 in the US and TSN in Canada. This will be the UFC's first show in Scotland and of course Glasgow is Joanne's home town. So this is a big deal and the fans there will be insane. This would be a good time for Joanne to bounce back from her recent loss to Maryna Moroz. Apparently Joanne was having personal problems leading up to that fight and there's more to fighting than the physical skills. A fighter must be mentally prepared and Joanne didn't look right before the fight. As I have said for the last couple of years, I don't think her kickboxing skills are enough to make her a champ. But Bec is mainly a kickboxer too and I just think Joanne is better at kickboxing. Bec is coming off of a win over Lisa Ellis and she will look to ride that momentum to a win. Remember these two were supposed to fight in Invicta a couple of years ago. But Bec was thrown into a title match when Claudia Gadelha dropped out due to injury. Considering the mixed results these two have had recently, this could be a pivotal fight for both.
