An exciting flyweight contest between Erin Blanchfield and Molly McCann takes place on the preliminary card of this Saturday’s UFC 281 event.
Blanchfield (9-1-0) is widely considered one of the brightest prospects in the UFC’s flyweight division. Currently riding on a twelve-fight win streak and an impressive 3-0 UFC run, Blanchfield has been dominating the competition and has picked up promotional wins against JJ Aldrich, Miranda Maverick, and Sarah Alpar. The 23-year-old is currently ranked at number-twelve in the UFC’s official flyweight contender rankings.
McCann (13-4-0) has seen her stardom rise significantly in 2022 thanks to back-to-back knockout victories at this year’s UFC London events. Currently ranked at number-fifteen in the UFC’s flyweight contender rankings, she’ll be taking on a significant step up in competition against Blanchfield. If the ‘Meatball’ is to emerge victorious on Saturday, there’ll be no doubt about it, Molly McCann 2.0 is here to stay and make her way to the top.
UFC 281 takes place this Saturday, November 12, 2022, from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, United States. The preliminary card, featuring Blanchfield VS McCann, will be aired live on ESPN+ & ESPNews from 8 pm ET.
