Molly McCann v Hannah Goldy UFC London Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions
UFC fans seem to be more connected to Molly McCann rather than her Scouse counterpart Paddy Pimblett.
Pimblett has his fans but he can split opinions, McCann – on the other hand – seems to have a huge fan base that grows with every fight she has.
The 32-year-old wears her heart on her sleeve and gives it her all to become the best fighter she can be.
She has won 12 of her 16 professional bouts with four defeats. McCann made her UFC debut back in May 2018 on the Stephen Thompson versus Darren Till at the Echo Arena in her home city of Liverpool.
Unfortunately for McCann, it was not a dream debut as she was submitted in the second round as she lost to Gillian Robertson.
She then went on a three-fight winning run with victories over Priscila Cachoeira, Ariane Lipski and Diana Belbita and she started to believe she belonged in the UFC.
Back-to-back defeats against Taila Santos and Lara Procopio saw her dream start to fade away and she knew she needed to up her game or she would be overlooked as a top contender.
She got back to winning ways in September 2021 when she got her arm raised with a points win over Ji Yeon Kim. She then felt on top of the world back in London when she knocked out Luana Carolina with a stunning spinning back elbow when it looked like the fight would go the distance.
She almost lifted the roof off the O2 Arena, and she is more confident than ever that she can climb to the top of the women’s flyweight rankings.
Every fight she has is a major test. She will go up against Hannah Goldy on Saturday with thousands of screaming Brits cheering her on.
Goldy has only had eight professional fights with a record of six wins and two losses. She made her UFC debut as part of Dana White’s Contender Series.
She lost back-to-back fights against Mirander Granger and Diana Belbita before getting her first-ever submission win when she defeated Emily Whitmire last September.
The crowd will get on the back of Goldy, and she is a massive underdog. I am backing McCann to dominate the fight and get her arm raised by taking the victory on points.
