Molly McCann Returns On July 15th
Molly McCann will attempt to extend her impressive win streak to 4, when she meets Taila Santos on July 15th on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. News of the fight was first reported by Jim Edwards.
McCann (10-2) was scheduled to face Ashlee Evans-Smith on March 21st at UFC London, before the ongoing pandemic resulted in the entire card being cancelled at short notice.
Santos (15-1) was also the victim of a scheduled fight falling through due to COVID-19. A match-up with McCann conqueror Gillian Robertson was due to take place last month in Canada, and the Brazilian will be looking to get her first win in the UFC after her debut ended in a split-decision loss to Mara Romero last February.
Since her UFC debut ended in defeat to Robertson in May 2017, McCann has rebounded with 3 straight wins, and is now ranked 14th in the flyweight division. McCann overcame suspected food poisoning and Diana Belbita in her last fight last October in Boston.
