UFC on ESPN+ 12 Handicapping
The feature fight of UFC on ESPN+ 12 is on the under card and is in the women’s flyweight division between Ariane Lipski and “Meatball” Molly McCann. This fight is slated to take place over three rounds, five minutes each round.
Ariane Lipski enters this fight with a record of 11-4 and riding a 1-fight losing streak. She made her UFC debut back in January 2019 against Joanne Calderwood and took the loss in that fight by unanimous decision.
Lipski really didn’t impress me in that fight. She basically cruised through 3 rounds and took the loss against a scrappy Calderwood. That fight ended a 9-fight win streak for Lipski but none of those fights were really anything that stood out and none of those opponents were anyone that is recognizable.
Molly McCann is 8-2 overall and is coming in off a 3-round unanimous decision win over Priscilla Cachoeira at UFC on ESPN+5 in March 2019. McCann is now 1-1 in the UFC, with her only loss coming via submission against Gillian Robertson in 2018.
McCann has legitimate 1-punch KO power and that is rare for the women’s flyweight division. She has 8 wins and half of those wins come by way of KO. Bottom line, if she puts those hands on you, chances are she is going to put you on your backside.
I simply was not impressed by Ariane Lipsky in her debut. She didn’t appear like she was ready or talented enough to really compete at this level of the UFC.
McCann has very good movement and will be difficult for Lipsky to get clean shots off on. I expect McCann will land some crisp shots in the first round, forcing Lipsky out of her game plan and then getting a stoppage win in the 2nd round! Take the dog here at +240!
