Calderwood to fight in Poland

For Calderwood the prospect of fighting in Europe, on the same card as some of the world's best female mixed martial artists, is an exciting one.

"It's worked out perfectly for me. It's good to see so many female fighters on the card – it will be similar, in a way, to my UFC debut at the TUF Finale. It's going to be a good night for fans."

Calderwood, with a professional MMA record of 9-0-0, faces an opponent with an impressive record herself. 

Moroz has finished four of her five professional MMA bouts to date by arm bar and she remains undefeated, as she heads into what will be her debut fight in the UFC.

But Calderwood insists she is up for the challenge and raring to get back inside the Octagon.

"I really look forward to challenging myself, especially with so many girls out there. I want to expose myself to different styles and the only way to do that is to get fights," she said.

"This is the first time I've not had to travel far for a fight. In my MMA career I've only ever fought in America and India, so it's good to be fighting closer to home. I feel a bit of a connection to Poland too because, in my gym, a quarter of the members are Polish and we do Polish classes. 

"They are always telling me that people in Poland talk about me when I'm fighting and they say I've got a few fans out there, so that's nice. It's been on my list of places to go so I'm glad to be fighting there," added Calderwood.
