Molly McCann has an early entry for Knockout of the Year.

The former Cage Warriors champion had the best finish of her career at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 204 in London. McCann (12-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) starched Brazil’s Luana Carolina with a spinning elbow that sent her crashing to the canvas in their women’s flyweight contest.

The official stoppage came at the 1:52 mark of Round 3.

It was a dominant showing throughout for McCann. She swarmed Carolina (8-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) early in the first round with numerous combinations. The second and third rounds were similar with McCann pushing the action and doing the most damage. It was in a breakaway from the clinch that McCann was able to land a spinning elbow.
