Joanne Calderwood vs. Andrea Lee is the latest bout to be in the works to take place at the UFC’s return to Abu Dhabi. 

The Las Vegas-based promotion reportedly wants this women’s strawweight showdown to take place at the UFC 242 pay-per-view (PPV) event. This fight booking was initially reported by MMA Junkie. As of this writing, the UFC has yet to confirm and officially announce the fight. 

Calderwood looks to get back to her winning ways coming into this fight after suffering a decision loss to Katlyn Chookagian in her last contest at UFC 238 in June. Before the setback, she was able to pick up three-straight wins at flyweight with wins over the likes of Ariane Lipski and Kalindra Faria.

Donny Aaron, the estranged husband of UFC women’s flyweight Andrea Lee, was finally jailed following allegations of domestic violence.

It came to light in August that Aaron was charged with domestic violence/battery and false imprisonment. He allegedly tried to burn Lee with a cigarette as well as choke her during an argument.

An arrest warrant was put out by the Shreveport (La.) Police Department, but Aaron was nowhere to be found. Police even speculated he had taken refuge in a local mixed martial arts gym.

However, nine months on, Aaron was finally booked into the Shreveport City Jail on Wednesday. According to MMA Junkie, though, he bonded out the very same day. There are no other details available as of now about the arrest.

Since the initial incident, Lee has asked for privacy on the matter and has since returned to action.

She defeated Ashlee Evans-Smith via unanimous decision at UFC Phoenix earlier this year. “KGB” is currently on a six-fight winning streak, having last suffered defeat in March 2016.
