MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani alluded to the bout Friday night on Twitter.

Tomorrow expects to be a fun one w/ many fight annnouncements. Two I’ve heard discussed: Calvillo-Calderwood (7/16), Elkins-Bermudez (7/22).

Calderwood (11-2) is coming off a first-round submission loss to No. 1 strawweight contender Jessica Andrade at UFC 203 last September. That loss snapped a two-fight winning streak for the Scottish fighter. Calderwood, 30, is one of the most dangerous strikers in the division.

Calvillo (5-0) has been busy early in her UFC career. The Team Alpha Male product won two fights in a span of five weeks in March and April to kick off her run in the big leagues, both by rear-naked choke. Calvillo, 29, is regarded as a top prospect at 115 pounds.

No headliner has been announced yet for UFC Fight Night 113. Paul Felder will take on Scotland’s Stevie Ray on the card in a matchup of exciting lightweights.
