Joanne Calderwood training with Sarah Kaufman in preparation for Ariane Lipski fight

Joanne Calderwood realizes that she has a challenging opponent in Ariane Lipski, so she has brought in one of WMMA’s heavy hitters as a training partner.

Calderwood’s (12-3) Instagram feed reveals that she has imported Canadian striker Sarah Kaufman (20-4) to Las Vegas to help her out as she trains out of her Syndicate MMA camp in preparation for meeting “The Violence Queen” (11-3). Lipski brings a well-rounded game, although she is most known for her Muay Thai-based striking.

Check out the pictures below from Calderwood’s Instagram page:

The Calderwood/Lipski fight is highly anticipated, and it will be interesting to see how Kaufman’s assistance to Calderwood adds to JoJo’s already considerable talent.

Who will you be rooting for?
