Cynthia Calvillo defeated Joanne Calderwood via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 113 in July of 2017.

If you recall, “Jojo” missed weight for that contest (118lbs) and ultimately made the move up to flyweight following the defeat.

In her first fight at 125-pounds, Calderwood would score a first-round submission victory over Kalindra Faria. The win improved Joanne’s overall record to a steller 12-3.

As for Cynthia Calvillo (7-1 MMA), the surging strawweight contender was most recently seen in action at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 140 event, where she scored a submission victory over Poliana Botelho.

Unfortunatley, Calvillo had missed weight for last weekend’s contest, nearly falling over on the weigh scale just a day prior to her emphatic victory.

Following her rough weight cut, which apparently stemmed from having her period, Cynthia Calvillo received a shot on social media from her former opponent Joanne Calderwood.

“Poor Cynthia..the last time I made that mistake was with her and funny enough the last time I fought at strawweight! I had lots of excuses about what had happened, now I shake my head in shame at them and realise I was uneducated and unprofessional when it came down to the meat and potatoes (literally). I reached out and got help and made that decision for my career that I’ll never make that unprofessional error again. Time to get help from the @ufcpi …move up and have a bigger problem on your hands..revenge is sweet baby! #iwantthatrematch” – Joanne Calderwood

Well it took five days, but Cynthia Calvillo finally responded to Calderwood’s social media post.

“Dear @badmofo_jojo , Not once did I ever criticize you for not making weight in our fight. If anything I sympathized. When you apologized I didn’t shrub you off and act like a bitch. Let’s be clear this is the first time I missed weight and I only spoke the truth about what happened. I learned from this error and it will not happen again. As for you, if and when I decide to move up to 125lbs I will gladly whoop your ass again and this time the bell won’t save you 😘” – Cynthia Calvillo

While most fans and analysts expected the pairs war of words to only escalate following Calvillo’s rebuttal, that proved not to be the case. Joanna Calderwood and Cynthia Calvillo instead actually proceeded to squash their beef.

“That was a milestone in my career and I’m truly grateful because it changed me for the better..I was stating that on my post and I hope it does the same for you. You looked in a real bad way and I have strong belief now that we should’t be killing ourselves like that anymore. But anyway good luck with your next cut and when you do come to 125lbs we will see what an actual ass whooping looks like.” – Joanne Calderwood

Cynthia Calvillo replied to Calderwood with the following message.

“@badmofo_joj DEAL! And good luck to you as well. Lessons learn. We live to fight another day!”
