McCann and Belbita already fought once before in a flyweight bout in October 2019, when McCann won by unanimous decision. Belbita was deducted a point in Round 2 for grabbing the cage, but the point deduction had no impact on the outcome of the fight.
After amassing a three-fight winning streak, including two straight Performance of the Night knockouts, McCann has been submitted in back-to-back fights.
Since making her strawweight debut, Belbita has split her past four appearances. After defeating Maria Oliveira by unanimous decision at UFC 289, the 27-year-old lost a decision to Karolina Kowalkiewicz in October.
With the addition, the UFC Fight Night lineup for Feb. 3 includes:
Roman Dolidze vs. Nassourdine Imavov
Thomas Petersen vs. Jamal Pogues
Luana Carolina vs. Julija Stoliarenko
Viviane Araujo vs. Natalia Silva
Kiefer Crosbie vs. Themba Gorimbo
Aliaskhab Khizriev vs. Makhmud Muradov
Blake Bilder vs. Jeong Yeong Lee
Marquel Mederos vs. Landon Quinones
Charles Radtke vs. Gilbert Urbina
Diana Belbita vs. Molly McCann
