UFC 257 McGregor vs Poirier: Scot superstar Joanne Calderwood to fight Jessica Eye | UK time, how to watch, full card


Scots fighting flyweight superstar Joanne ‘Jojo’ Calderwood takes on Jessica Eye in tonight’s main card of UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi.

The Irvine fighter, number seven in the world, will look to add to her 14-5 mixed martial arts record with a win over number six ranked ‘Evil’ Eye.

The fight will come before the Notorious Conor McGregor takes on Dustin Poirier in the lightweight main event, his first outing since demolishing Donald Cerrone last year in just 40 seconds.

Calderwood is expected to scrap third on the card behind the co-main event which sees Dan Hooker welcome new signing Michael Chandler to the UFC in another lightweight bout.
