Rising UFC star Molly McCann has drawn attention from Celtic fans after being spotted training in a Celtic top this week.

McCann is currently gearing up to make a return to the octagon and is apparently a fan of the 2019/20 third kit made by New Balance. That was the grey and pink effort which wasn’t exactly a massive hit with the wider support!

She posted a photo on Twitter yesterday, drawing a big response from both Celtic supporters and rival fans.

McCann comes from Liverpool is a proud Evertonian, so don’t expect her to be rocking up with a Celtic season ticket or anything, but it is nice to see the Bhoys represented!

Amusingly she isn’t afraid to hit back at Rangers fans who have sent her poor tweets in the wake of posting the photos.

McCann has a 4-3 win-loss record in the UFC but is on the up after a standout performance against Ji Yeon Kim in her last fight earlier this month.

She picked up a “Fight Of The Night” bonus after going toe-to-toe with the South Korean.

Now looking for her next fight in the UFC, she is part of an ever-growing Liverpudlian presence in the MMA group, alongside the likes of Paddy Pimblett.
