McCann vs Stoliarenko Odds & Pick: Meatball Molly In The Spotlight

Fan favorite Molly McCann will fight Julija Stoliarenko in the co-main event of Saturday's UFC Fight Night in London.

"Meatball Molly," as she's so affectionately nicknamed, put on a show in her last fight at the O2 Arena, and she'll enter as a -250 favorite this time around.

Prelims start at 12 p.m. ET, and the McCann-Stoliarenko fight will rile up the crowd for a heavyweight main event between Tom Aspinall and Marcin Tybura.

McCann vs Stoliarenki Betting Preview: Who Has The Better Chance?

Is this an easy KO win for Meatbolly Molly? Let's see.

How McCann Wins

Molly must let those bowling ball hands fly early. The longer this fight goes, the better Stoliarenko's chances are. As shaky as her record is, McCann is very strong for the flyweight division and can overwhelm most opponents. To beat Stoliarenko, Molly needs to get in her face right away and smash her body with punches. Once the damage mounts, the Liverpool native can go in for the kill.

How Stoliarenko

Armbar. Armbar. Armbar. Stoliarenko owns a dreadful 1-5 UFC record, having been finished by chokes and punches, but she does appear to have a ton of armbar victories from her pre-UFC days. Her jiu-jitsu is her best chance.

McCann got absolutely torched on the ground by Erin Blanchfield at UFC 281. Blanchfield is a future champion, so we can excuse that beating, but if Stoliarenko can somehow evade McCann's offense and wrangle this bout to the ground, things will be much safer.

McCann vs Stoliarenko Betting Pick

I like Molly by KO/TKO. If you want more value, go with Molly in Round 1 (+350) or Round 2 (+550).

Pick: McCann By KO/TKO (+130)
