‘Meatball’ Molly McCann will get another chance to perform in front of her hometown crowd when she faces Hannah Goldy this summer.

Announced by the UFC, fan favorite Molly McCann will return to London on July 23 to face division rival Hannah Goldy. Returning to the O2 Arena for the first time since March, the event is expected to be headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Tom Aspinall and Curtis ‘Razor’ Blaydes

Molly McCann (12-4-0 MMA, 5-3-0 UFC) will make back-to-back appearances in London when she steps into the Octagon on July 23. In her last London outing, McCann scored a highlight reel spinning back fist knockout of Luana Carolina earning ‘Meatball’ a cool 50k bonus for her efforts. 

McCann is riding a two fight win streak with a unanimous decision victory over Ji Yeon Kim in September. A win over Goldy in London would match McCann’s longest win streak since joining the promotion in 2018.

Hannah Goldy (6-2-0 MMA, 2-2-0 UFC) earned her way into the UFC on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2019. Two months after her win, she made her official debut in a losing effort against Miranda Granger. Goldy would be on the shelf for nearly two years before returning to the Octagon in July 2021. Goldy would lose her second straight, this time to Diana Belbita. 

Determined to get back in the win column, Goldy stepped into the cage in September and earned a first round armbar submission over Emily Whitmire. Goldy will look to make it two-in-a-row for the first time in her UFC career when she squares off with McCann in July.
