UFC Scotland: Bec Rawlings expects you to spit on her, promises to make Joanne Calderwood cry on July 18

Shades of Spitsbing?

Bec Rawlings is expecting mixed martial arts (MMA) fans to hock a loogey on her Australian face when she enters hostile territory at UFC Fight Night 72 on July 18, 2015, inside the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. That's where she'll battle hometown hero and fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 standout Joanne Calderwood.

Sounds like "Rowdy" is taking a calm, relaxed approach (via Daily Record):

"I want to eat her soul and maul her face off. People are never the same again after they fight me. I don't go in there to lay on them or go for a decision, I expect to hurt them. I expect a first round finish and for JoJo to be crying on the floor afterwards. All of the Scottish men in the crowd can cry as well. I'm expecting to have people spit on me when I walk out. I thrive off chaos and negativity. All I care about is getting in the cage, hurting my opponent and making the money. It doesn't have to be pretty. Last year was the hardest one of my life and now I'm surrounded by positive people. It's my time."

Rawlings (6-4) is fresh off a dominant submission victory over Lisa Ellis at UFC Fight Night 65 back in May, one that snapped a two-fight losing streak. Calderwood (9-1), meanwhile, is trying to bounce back from an upset loss to Maryna Moroz last April.
