4-0 Scot Joanne Calderwood has been fighting in professional MMA for under a year, but has already got a great reputation and worldwide opportunities. She was also offered the Invicta title shot instead of the fight with forum favourite Bec Hyatt (who has now stepped in for the belt).

Joanne explains her decision, and the fight at Invicta:

http://www.yourmma.tv/fighters/interview-details.asp/id/306/joanne-calderwood-invicta-4-interview.htm

"I have fought on a few weeks notice before, never a week against someone ranked number 4 in the world though. My coaches James [Doolan] and Paul [McVeigh] made the decision for me not to take this fight based on the difference in styles more than anything. Carla is an exceptional wrestler and has a really good top game, I've been preparing for a scrap on the feet with Bec and shutting down her guard, so they're almost polar opposites.

"We brought in specific sparring partners in preparation for Bec. If they'd offered me the fight with Carla with a few weeks notice I would have taken it. If they offered me Carla as a replacement for Ashley Cummins when I fought her I would have taken it too, as style-wise theyr'e similar."

She now takes on Livia Von Plettenburg of Team Quest. With Joanne a Muay Thai champion and Livia an experienced kickboxer, it should make for a great fight!

Great stuff - top guys. I've been on many a road trip with those boys. Can't go wrong with them in terms of how they are, and the skills they have! Gonna try head up for a few days at some point this year.
