Would love to be like Bisping: McCann open to short notice fight with Shevchenko

Molly McCann is riding high on momentum following her win at UFC London. The English MMA star knocked out Luana Carolina and is looking for the next challenge in the division.

“I’m bulletproof in here now. And I wasn’t until the [Ji Yeon] Kim fight in September, but this really solidified now — I am the business, and when I believe I am, you get them kinds of performances. If I’m someone who can give an emotional performance every single time, and when you get the good emotion out of me, you get world-class performances — it just takes time to get that and to get it right, and I feel the stars have aligned for me,” she said (via MMA Fighting).

Speaking further, she said that she would take the opportunity to fight Valentina Shevchenko on short notice if Talia Santos pulls out of the fight.

Shevchenko is scheduled to defend her title against Santos at UFC 275 in June and McCann added that she would love to be like Michael Bisping, who took a title fight against Luke Rockhold on short notice and won.

“I’m really, really focused about coming for that belt and I’m not gonna be calling Shevchenko out, but if [Shevchenko’s scheduled opponent] Taila Santos gets an injury or anything like that in June, I’m over here. I feel like anyone anyone in the division should. If you wouldn’t jump at the opportunity then what are you doing? I would love to be like Michael Bisping,” she said.
