I’m at least ready for a Shevchenko sister


Molly McCann is ready to face Shevchenko after her UFC London win, but not this one.

One of the biggest winners of the night at UFC London last weekend was Molly McCann. She knocked out Hannah Goldy in the first round with a spinning elbow followed by strikes. The TKO was the second in a row for McCann and now she is in a position to start calling fights.

In the UFC London post-fight presser, McCann called out a household name, Antonina Shevchenko. Antonina is the sister of UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko. McCann acknowledges that she may not be ready to face the champion yet, but she is ready to beat her sister.

Molly McCann has a plan to eliminate Antonina Shevchenko before eliminating Valentina

“So I never call anyone what’s not fair to me. But when you’re talking about legacy, prestige, who’s the best in the game is Valentina, you know? Am I ready yet? Valentina? No, boy, come on. Am I Antonina ready? Let’s see, I think I am,” McCann said.

“It’s not like a diss. It’s not like I thought I was going to FU everywhere. No, I honestly think it’s an amazing fight to have. And I know that if they make a fight coming from me, if I ever go to Shevchenko, they will have the plans, but I will also have the plans. So with the utmost respect, I said her name because I think she’s the best. So, I would like you to tell her that I believe she is the best, that’s what I’m trying to challenge her for.

Antonina Shevchenko had eight fights in the UFC, she won four of those fights. Shevchenko is 37 and less accomplished in mixed martial arts than her sister. McCann thinks a victory over one sister could make the fight with the other more interesting. The only UFC woman to have fought both Shevchenko sisters is Katlyn Chookagian, who beat Antonina right after losing to champion Valentina.

Do you think McCann’s idea of ​​fighting the two Shevchenko sisters is a good one?
