UFC Europe yesterday confirmed that Molly McCann will be fighting at UFC Fight Night: Reyes v Weidman in Boston later this year. Set for Saturday 19th October, McCann (9-2) will face UFC debutant, Diana Belbita (11-4) in the flyweight division.

As the first English woman to win in the Octagon following her savage encounter with Priscila Cachoeira at UFC Fight Night: London in March, fan favourite McCann is currently riding a two-fight win streak following wins over Cachoeria and Brazilian compatriot Ariane Lipski.

Fighting out of Drobeta-Turnu Severin in Romania, twenty-three-year-old Diana Belbita has mostly competed on the RXF promotion in her native Romania but has two fights under her belt on KSW events, including a first-round submission (armbar) defeat to McCann’s last opponent, Ariane Lipski.

UFC Fight Night: Reyes vs Weidman takes place on Saturday 19th October at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Confirmed fights to date:

Dominick Reyes vs. Chris Weidman – Light Heavyweight
Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Calvin Kattar – Featherweight
Maycee Barber vs. Gillian Robertson – Flyweight
Daniel Spitz vs. Tanner Boser – Heavyweight
Randy Costa vs. Boston Salmon – Bantamweight
Brandon Allen vs. Eric Spicely – Middleweight
