McCann beats Belbita at UFC event in Boston
Liverpool’s Molly McCann won her third straight Octagon bout with a thirdround decision against Romanian newcomer Diana Belbita at UFC Fight Night in Boston. The British fighter, nicknamed “Meatball”, was given a 30-26 win by all three judges to take her overall record to 10 victories and two defeats. The 29-year-old flyweight was on the offensive against UFC debutant Belbita, producing a strong takedown followed by some hard ground strikes at the end of the first round. “I was this close to being sick on the floor at the end of the second, but I didn’t panic, tried to relax and land when I did,” McCann said to UFC media afterwards.
