Valerie Letourneau vs Joanne Calderwood set for first-ever UFC women’s flyweight bout

<p>Valerie Letourneau is scheduled to face Joanne Calderwood in the <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/Letourneau-to-Face-Calderwood-in-Ottawa">first-ever UFC women&rsquo;s bout to be held 125 pounds.</a></p> <p>The UFC has noted that this is not the introduction of a new division to the roster, but that we can expect to see more women&rsquo;s fights at this weight. The bout will take place at <a href="http://roughcopy.com/events/ufc-fight-night-89">UFC Fight Night 89</a> in Letourneau&rsquo;s home-province of Quebec, Canada in June.</p> <p>Letourneau (8-4) recently made an unsuccessful run at the strawweight title, winning three straight bouts to earn a title shot at current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk. The last of the three bouts was a unanimous decision victory over then-undefeated Maryna Moroz. Letourneau entered the bout against Jędrzejczyk as a heavy underdog and lost via unanimous decision but posed a tougher challenge for the champ than most had expected.</p> <p>Joanna Calderwood (10-1) has been out of competition since last July. Following her loss to Maryna Moroz in April 2015, Calderwood bounced back by scoring a unanimous decision over Cortney Casey in her home-country of Scotland. Calderwood entered the promotion after making it to the semi-finals on <em>The Ultimate Fighter 20</em> and made her official debut against professional kickboxer Seo Hee Ham, who she beat via decision.</p> <p>UFC Fight Night 89 marks the UFC&rsquo;s debut in Canada&rsquo;s capital of Ottawa. The event will take place at the TD Place Arena on June 18 and will be headlined by a possible title elimination bout between top welterweight contenders Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson.</p>
