Submission! Watch Jessica Andrade choke out Joanne Calderwood at UFC 203 last night

In one of the more underrated matchups last night (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) at UFC 203 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's strawweight contenders Jessica Andrade and Joanne Calderwood went toe-to-toe in a tantalizing clash of top-flight finishers.

After a brief feeling out period that favored the longer and more technical Calderwood, Andrade imposed her will, gained inside positioning on the Scotland native, secured a takedown and proceeded to land some serious ground-and-pound. As Calderwood attempted to get back to her feet, the Brazilian sunk in a nasty guillotine choke to earn the first-round submission finish.

With this victory, Andrade moves one step closer to a title fight with current strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. She may have one or two more fights to win, but the 24-year-old has looked downright punishing since dropping to 115 pounds earlier this year.
