Molly McCann mocks beloved Everton after delighting UFC London with first-round stoppage
READ MORE: Drake places £1.9million bet on Paddy Pimblett and Meatball Molly's fights at UFC London The Meatball came out firing and in a bid to delight the crowd and did just that with a string of brutal connections that included her now trademark spinning back elbow.With Herb Dean calling off the bout inside the opening round the Meatball hailed the crowd for their support of female combat sports, which she says is unrivalled.Commentator Michael Bisping then asked McCann who she would like to fight next - but she insisted that it wasn't up to her - but the big Blue did jokingly say: "I won't let you down - I'm not Everton Football Club!" Who should Molly McCann fight next? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.Earlier on the night, Nicolas Dalby beat Claudio Silva by unanimous decision with Victoria Leonardo securing victory over Mandy Bohm by the same method.Up next was the Black Country Banger Jai Herbert, who took on Canadian Kyle Nelson and claimed a unanimous decision victory as did Muhammad Mokaev over Charles Johnson.The first stoppage of the night came at the hands of Jonathan Pearce who wore down Makwan Amirkhani to secure a second round finish before Nathaniel Wood got back to winning ways after a war with Charles Rosa.Fellow Brit Marc Diakiese then made it four in a row for the home favourites by seeing off the threat of Damir Hadzovic over three rounds at lightweight.
