UFC flyweight contender Joanne Calderwood is set to meet her next opponent Jennifer Maia in the upcoming UFC on ESPN 31 event at Apex Centre this week. However, ‘Jojo’ Calderwood has been grabbing headlines for some other reasons too.

The 34-year-old Scottish fighter did a lot of impressions of fellow UFC superstars during a media round in the past.

The official handle of UFC Europe posted the video where Joanne is spotted duplicating Nate Diaz’s famous callout to Conor McGregor in 2015.

Although it was just a friendly banter from Joanne’s side, she newly expressed her desire to face Conor McGregor. No wonder, a statement which might surprise the entire UFC roster.

Joanne Calderwood reveals why she called out Conor McGregor

It is clear that Joanne was impersonating Nate Diaz in the clip and she had no intention of feuding with ‘The Notorious’. However, she still added some more thrill to the mix lately.

Calderwood revealed to Aaron Bronsteter that she called out Conor McGregor because she is sure about the Irish denying the call. If it may sound absurd, let us clarify that Joanne is in no mood to face the Irishman. Neither is she planting another intergender championship seed in UFC.

It was just an entertaining stunt from the Scottish for her fans. Explaining the callout, Joanne said, “Yeah coz he (McGregor) is surely not coming to my weight. He is unwilling to cut off his both legs. I wonder if he responds to that if you come out of retirement. (laughs).”

She has impersonated a lot of iconic moments of UFC fighters in the process. But Conor McGregor has predictably garnered all the attention.

While internet callouts have been a predictable stance for McGregor, a friendly callout from Joanne ‘Jojo’ Calderwood has entertained a bunch of UFC fans recently. McGregor is yet to react over the current issue like he usually does.

Calderwood’s upcoming fight

‘Jojo’ Calderwood will fight a tough contestant in Jennifer Maia this week. While Calderwood is coming off an impressive win in her last performance, Maia would want to bounce back from a crushing defeat.

That said, Maia is still a worthy opponent. She boasts a pro record of 17 wins, 6 losses, and one no contest. She has already notched notable victories against Roxanne Modafferi and Alexis Davis. Thus, Calderwood cannot afford to take her lightly.

Otherly, Calderwood has a pro-MMA record of 14 wins and four losses. She is 6-4 in UFC. Her UFC journey has been promising until now. No wonder a couple of wins would bring her closer to the divisional champion, Valentina Shevchenko.

Allen Iverson Prefers LeBron James Over Michael Jordan, Says Hes The One

Allen Iverson believes LeBron James is a better player than Michael Jordan.

Jordan vs. LeBron has been one of the biggest debates in all of sports for more than a decade, and now the NBA legend has weighed in. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“As much as I love Michael Jordan, Lebron James is the one…that motherf***er is the one,” Iverson said while talking with Fat Joe, according to TMZ. You can watch his full comments below.

I have to agree with Iverson. In fact, I’m not sure how you couldn’t agree with Iverson when it comes to who is better.

Yes, Michael Jordan has six rings, and LeBron only has three. We all know that, we understand that and nobody is debating it.

However, the NBA has changed a lot since Michael Jordan dominated it with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan played against players who are laughable athletes compared to the players out there today.

Just watch highlights from right now and then watch some from 20+ years ago. It’s not even comparable.

LeBron James is also a physical freak of nature. He’s bigger and substantially stronger than Michael Jordan could have ever dreamed of being.

Now, you can argue that Michael Jordan was a better competitor, but when it comes to actual basketball talent, the Lakers star is without question better from a pure talent standpoint.

If this doesn’t motivate you to be great, I don’t know what will. “Winning has a price, leadership has a price… ‘The one thing about Michael Jordan was he never asked me to do something that he didn’t ****ing do.” pic.twitter.com/sEt4eE9nTz
