There may be over a foot in height between them, but Stormzy was shocked to see that UFC star Molly McCann could lift him with ease.

The British rapper is a big fan of Scouse duo McCann and Paddy Pimblett, and was seen celebrating with the duo following their wins at UFC London on Saturday night. Stormzy was also in the front row for the event, and McCann ran over to the rapper to celebrate after her first round finish against Hannah Goldy.

And at a height of 6'4, there aren't many people that Stormzy would fear. But he had Pimblett to thank for stopping him hitting the deck on Saturday after McCann picked him up amid wild celebrations.

A wild McCann was already seen celebrating with drinks outside the Octagon after her TKO finish over Goldy on Saturday, and the party continued backstage after Pimblett also got the better of his opponent. Pimblett won via submission in round two as he choked out Jordan Leavitt, and proceeded to celebrate with McCann as usual.

But this time Stormzy joined them, and Pimblett went from being the aggressor to the defender as he stopped the rapper from falling. McCann may stand at only 5'3, but she shocked Stormzy with her immense strength.

You could see the surprise in Stomrzy's eyes as he was thrusted from the ground by the UFC star, a feeling he can't be too familiar with. And Pimblett's reactions stopped a savage fall backstage.

Stormzy screamed: "Oh my days," as he was hauled into the air by McCann, and slowly backed away as he used Pimblett as a shield. McCann then laughed saying: "They make us Scousers different, man."

The rapper couldn't believe what had happened, and continued: "Why you gotta do me like that?!" It's not often that Stormzy feels inferior, but McCann is clearly built different.

The Scouse duo have become major stars in the UFC, and the crowd at the 02 went wild for the British pair on Saturday night. They look set to return this year too, with Pimblett assuring viewers he will feature again before 2023.
