'Meatball' Molly McCann shows off gruesome eye injury after UFC London victory

‘Meatball’ Molly McCann secured her first UFC victory despite suffering a gruesome injury against Priscila Cachoeira.

McCann was facing off against the Brazilian at UFC London as she eyed her first victory in the Octagon.

The Liverpudlian was ahead going into the final round but the cage-side doctor was forced to examine her left eye after it swelled shut, with less than a minute remaining.

McCann was allowed to continue and survived a cheap shot from her opponent before giving Cachoeira the middle finger on her way out of the Octagon.

She screamed “Liverpool, that was for you!” down the camera lens shortly after she was confirmed as the winner of the bout.

With the victory, McCann becomes the first English female to win in the UFC.

The success came at a cost though as the 28-year-old showed off her gruesome eye injury on Instagram .

McCann also posted another picture from inside an ambulance as she was taken to hospital for treatment.

McCann also sent a video message to her followers after the impressive victory.

She posted: “I am fine. I got the f***** win. Anyone who is struggling in life, don’t give up because you can reach your dreams if you don’t stop.”
