After UFC London was canceled last week, flyweights Ashlee Evans-Smith and Molly McCann are hoping their fight is rebooked.
The pair was scheduled to meet at the UFC London Fight Night event on March 21, however, the event was canceled just days before due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Evans-Smith and McCann hopped on a planned Instagram Live stream to discuss their match-up and the events that unfolded.
Despite the confusion upon landing in London with travel bans and such, “Rebel Girl” is open to returning to the U.K. for a fight. “Hopefully you and I could still fight. I would love to come back to London,” Evans-Smith told McCann.
If London is not an option, Liverpool’s “Meatball” suggests the UFC Fight Night card in Dublin, Ireland, on August 15. “If London doesn’t happen, I’m just going to call for Dublin in August. We’d get a good reception there, to be honest,” she said.
Both fighters shared a mutual respect for one another.
“You don’t always get the same opponent. But we’ve trained for each other already and might as well make it happen,” McCann added.
Evans-Smith agreed, “We’ve suffered together, we might as well make each other suffer.”
