Calderwood was next in line to fight women’s flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko. However, Shevchenko had to pull out of their UFC 251 fight with an injury. Instead of waiting on the sidelines for Shevchenko to get healthy, Calderwood decided to return to the cage and fight Maia. Calderwood entered Saturday’s fight as the third-ranked UFC women’s flyweight fighter. Since returning to flyweight, Calderwood has won three of her last four fights. In her last fight, Calderwood defeated Andrea Lee by split decision at UFC 242.

Maia entered the fight as the sixth-ranked women’s flyweight. After missing weight in her last two fights, Maia made weight ahead of her fight. The former Invicta flyweight champion lost her last fight Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 244. Maia’s victory on Saturday was the biggest of her career and immediately puts her into title contention.
