Flyweight contender Joanne Calderwood was taken to a local hospital when she passed out backstage after her fight with Jennifer Maia on Saturday night at UFC Vegas 5.

UFC President Dana White first announced the news at the UFC Vegas 5 post-fight press conference. According to Calderwood’s manager, Danny Rubenstein, the Scottish fighter suddenly fainted while she was seated, and her head coach and fiancé John Wood caught her before she was able to hit the ground.

Calderwood was then transported to a hospital for treatment.

“She’s okay now,” Rubenstein told MMA Fighting via text message. “She was getting checked out in the medical room and fainted while sitting down. John caught her, they laid her down and carted her out on a stretcher.

“Heart rate dropped on the way there but stabilized now. She’s awake at the hospital with Wood.”

Calderwood had suffered a submission loss to Maia in her fight after getting caught in an armbar in the opening round.

As of now, Calderwood is still receiving treatment at the local hospital, but there’s no word yet on what exactly caused her to pass out backstage.
