Molly McCann vs. Ariane Lipski booked for Greenville

A “Meatball” and “Violence Queen” are set to do battle in the South.

The UFC announced on Thursday that Molly McCann will fight Ariane Lipski in a women’s flyweight bout at UFC on ESPN+ 12 on June 22 from Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina.

McCann (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC), 28, made history last month, becoming the first female English fighter to win a UFC fight with a unanimous decision over Priscilla Cachoeira in London. “Meatball” paid the price, though, as she suffered a broken orbital during the bout. But she’ll be set for her return in June.

McCann meets another Brazilian in the “Violence Queen” Lipski (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who is coming off a loss in her UFC debut. In January, Lipski, 25, lost a unanimous decision to Joanne Calderwood at UFC on ESPN+ 1.
