Strawweights Joanne Calderwood (9-1) and Bec Rawlings (6-4) are slated for UFC Fight Night 72 in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 18.
Calderwood and Rawlings have never fought one another in the cage, including during their stints in the TUF 20 house. But outside of the cage it’s a different story.
There’s no love lost between them, and tensions started on twitter even before the fight was formally announced, as Calderwood preemptively blocked Rawlings and the rest of the Scrapettes.
Rawlings is coming off her win over Lisa Ellis (15-10) in Adelaide, and Calderwood off her upset loss to Maryna Moroz (6-0) in Krakow.
Here’s hoping one of them is self-aware enough to use Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” as their walkout song.
