Molly McCann vs Priscila Cachoeira

In a flyweight battle, two coming from stoppage losses strikers meet for a chance to keep their UFC contracts secure. There is no overcomplication when breaking down this fight. Both women are primarily strikers, and both are pretty basic at doing so. Cachoeira feasted on absolute horrendous opposition in Brazil before getting the beating of a lifetime at the hands of Valentina Sevchenko. Mario Yamasaki let the punishment go too far and poor Cachoeira ended up in the hospital with a knee injured seconds into the fight and his face destroyed. McCann actually has a win in the UFC and has faced better opposition in general, though nothing special. She was taken down and easily submitted by Gillian Robertson in his last fight but she has a much more favorable matchup this time. I think McCann will take the win in which could end up being a slugfest. She is shorter and stockier, throws more volume and seems to have more pop on her punches. I can see McCann earning a late stoppage when the punches begin to accumulate and a bet on her to win in round 3 at (+1800) offers great value. A poke is more than justified. Do not expect high level MMA here but this fight could end up being a fan favourite at the end of the night.
