 January 2014

Joanne "JoJo" Calderwood the Muay Thai Fighter turned MMA Athlete has re-signed with SANDEE and becomes an official SANDEE fighter and part of the growing SANDEE fight team.

Calderwood part of the Dinky Ninjas Fight Team based at the Griphouse Gym in Glasgow, Scotland has 8 straight wins and no losses in her MMA career and has recently been signed to the UFC and will be taking part in an all female Ultimate Fighter (TUF 20) being filmed in May.

In a surprise move by the UFC last December, UFC president Dana White announced that the organisation would have a brand new female weight division after acquiring the contacts of 11 straw weight INVICTA fighters who would fight in The Ultimate Fighter reality series, of which the winner would be crowned the new and first  115lb Female UFC champion.

Calderwood has had 4 of her 8 MMA fights in INVICTA the all female MMA promotion based out of Kansas USA, and quickly became a fan favourite with her surgical muay thai techniques acquired from years of Mauy Thai at The Griphouse Gym in Scotland training under head trainer and owner Guy Ramsay. Calderwood had 21 Muay Thai fights with 17 wins out of the Griphouse Gym including fights in Thailand before making the move to MMA, with the support of her fiance and coach, MMA Fighter James Doolan.

Steve Hewitt CEO of Sandee Worldwide, said "Joanne is the perfect fit for SANDEE and we are proud to continue our partnership with her as she starts the next stage of her exciting MMA Career. Joanne was known in Muay Thai as one of the top female fighters in the world before moving to MMA and we know she has the determination to get to the top and become the first British UFC champion."
