This weekend’s featured women’s MMA fight sees England’s Molly “Meatball” McCann take on Invicta FC veteran Lacey “The Ladie” Schuckman in a match contested in the 125lb flyweight division.
The fight will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass and showcases a fight in a division which the UFC currently does not have. The UFC currently has a 115, 135 and 145lb division, filling in the gap with a 125lb seems inevitable, the winner of this fight could put themselves in position for a shot at the roster, when that day finally comes.
McCann (4-1-0) is coming off an impressive three fight winning streak which includes brutal TKO victories over Anjela Pink and Macicilia Benkhetache. The 26-year-old was born in Liverpool, England and now fights out of the Ippon Gym in Bournemouth, England. She has never been finished inside her professional or amateur mixed martial arts career and is regarded as one of England’s top female prospects. She believes she will someday be representing England as part of the UFC.
“Meatball” is more than just an athlete, she is a fighter! Back in October, McCann took on France’s Macicilia Benkhetache, absolutely battering her in the second round to pick up the TKO victory. ShocknAweTV have made the fight available to view in it’s entirety via their YouTube channel. Take a look at it below.
