Flyweights do battle this Saturday, live on UFC Fight Pass

This Saturday at Cage Warriors 82, a women’s flyweight fight is set to take place between Molly “Meatball” McCann and Lacey “The Ladie” Schuckman, the event will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass.

McCann is one of England’s most highly touted prospects.

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.

Schuckman will be making the move up from strawweight to flyweight.

Schuckman (11-9-0) is currently signed to premier women’s mixed martial arts organization, Invicta FC. She has been given special permission by the organization to compete for Cage Warriors. The 28-year-old who fights out of Denver, Colorado is currently 2-2 in her last four fights. She holds notable first round finishes over Jenny Liou, Melissa Myers and Jody-Lynn Reicher. She usually competes in the 115-pound strawweight division, but believes that cutting less weight will lead to an even better version of herself. As well as MMA, she has enjoyed great success in submission grappling competitions.

The fight is an exciting 125-pound flyweight showcase and will no doubt have many eyes on it, considering it will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass. The UFC currently has a 115, 135 and 145-pound division. It is only a matter of time before the organization decides to introduce a 125-pound division in order to fill in the gap. An impressive showing on Saturday could very well put the winner on the UFC’s radar.
