The Rock responds to request from Scouse UFC star Molly McCann following latest bout

Actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has responded to a special request from Scouse UFC star 'Meatball' Molly McCann following her latest UFC victory.

McCann, 32, successfully defeated Hannah Goldy at the 02 Arena in London this weekend after a devastating Spinning Back Elbow KO after 3:52 of Round 1.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, the Evertonian has insisted she would like to keep the Rock's famous WWE finishing move firmly in her fighting arsenal for as long as possible.

She wrote: ''Excuse me Mr Rock, but can I keep borrowing the peoples elbow. It’s doing me bits.''

Johnson has since replied, adding: "From the ELECTRIFYING People’s Elbow to the DEVASTATING People’s Meatbow. Its all yours! Keep kicking ass and having FUN, champ! Much respect, Mr Rock.''

McCann was of course accompanied by fellow scouser Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett on this weekend's card of action, with Pimblett taking just two round to force a submission stoppage from Jordan Leavitt.

Talk has now extended on just what lies next for the pair, with questions regarding a local event on Merseyside still lingering on given a whole host of fans had travelled to the capital to watch the action this weekend.
