Molly McCann’s strawweight debut was successful – and violent.

Saturday at UFC Fight Night 235, McCann (14-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC) torqued Diana Belbita’s left arm in the wrong direction for a tap at the 4:59 mark of Round 2. The bout was the featured prelim at the UFC Apex.

The armbar submission was visually and audibly gruesome. Belbita (15-9 MMA, 2-5 UFC) screamed in pain as the pressure was applied. As McCann celebrated, Belbita still struggled with her injured limb. Medical staffers rushed to support her, as did McCann after a lap around the cage.

The bout was a rematch of an October 2019 fight, which McCann won by unanimous decision. The victory snaps a two-fight skid for McCann, while it sends Belbita into a two-fight skid.

Prior to the bout, Belbita revealed recent considerations of retirement.
