The very first UFC event on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi was a smashing success last weekend, drawing viewers and enormous betting handles.
We only have to wait a few days for UFC Fight Night this Wednesday featuring a women’s bout between up-and-comer Taila Santos against former Cage Warriors Flyweight champ Molly McCann. This looks like a pretty even match according to Bovada Sportsbook, who has McCann as a slight -120 favorite.
McCann (10-2-0) is ranked No. 15 in the women’s flyweight division and is on a roll with three straight wins in 2019. She took more than a year off after losing her UFC debut back in 2018. McCann has never submitted anybody and only four of her 10 career wins are via knockout. She averages 5.3 significant strikes per minute.
UFC Live Odds
Molly McCann -120
Taila Santos -110
Santos was 15-0 in her MMA career until her UFC debut in February of 2019. She lost that bout to Mara Romero Borella at UFC on ESPN+ 2. She was to fight three more times in 2019 but each ended up canceled for various reasons. 10 of her 15 wins were via knockout, but eight of her 15 wins have come against fighters who didn’t have a single win at the time they met.

Prediction: McCann has faced much stiffer competition in her career than Santos and that gives here the edge. This one should probably go the distance, so I’ll take McCann to win by decision at +130.
