‘That spinning elbow means f**k all on Saturday’: Molly McCann insists she cannot bask in the glow of UFC London heroics as ‘Meatball’ returns to scene of incredible KO in Hannah Goldy clash
- Molly McCann lit up UFC London in March with an incredible spinning-elbow KO
- It won her a $50,000 bonus but ‘Meatball’ knows it matters little this Saturday
- McCann is taking on Hannah Goldy and will have the crowd behind her again
- She said: ‘That’s not going to win me the fight living off the last fight’
Molly McCann had admitted fond memories of her incredible spinning-elbow KO back in March will do ‘f**k all’ for her on Saturday night.
‘Meatball’ returns to the scene of her spectacular triumph over Luana Carolina but is starting afresh against Hannah Goldy this time.
The 32-year-old took home a performance bonus of $50,000 for her knockout four months ago but understands it must be consigned to the history books.
Molly McCann knows her incredible KO in London back in March means little now
She said: ‘That spinning elbow means f*** all on Saturday doesn’t it. That’s not going to win me the fight living off the last fight.
‘But what it has done it’s given me the belief and the mental fortitude to come into this one and know what I’m really capable of.
‘I think you may have all really seen it last time I was here. I was calm. I was collected. I had my odd little jokes and my swear words here and there.
‘But I’m really finding my feet in the UFC now and I just want to show consistency.
‘Look, I’m actually fighting someone who I’ve actually got a reach on so I don’t actually have to force a fight for a change, I’m just going to be able to stick and move and have a good go.’
Goldy has lost two of her last three and knows that a win over McCann in enemy territory could ignite her career.
But the Liverpool fighter is ready for anything, adding: ‘I see the fight going one of two ways. Her style is quite counter-striking off the back foot and I’m prepared for all of it.
‘I’ve fought Taila Santos on the floor, I’ve fought Lara Procopio on the floor, I’m very much now accustomed to them fights.
‘We’ve tidied up in places and we’ve worked hard. After the last fight I got to go away and I trained with J-Flo just like our Patrick did the time before. Got to go back to some judo and stuff that should nullify her strengths.’
