In the cage, Paddy Pimblett fights at lightweight and Mollie McCann at strawweight but, outside the sport, both Liverpudlian fighters are fast becoming heavyweight celebrities known for telling it like it is and, unusually for fighters, not afraid of a bit of self-deprecation or vulnerability. 

And that's where "Paddy & Molly: Show No Mersey" comes in. This is a cage-side seat behind the scenes, with two of the most bankable British stars in UFC. It's all in there: the ups and downs of a fighter's life (the glory and fights in Vegas versus injury, training and "making the weight"); life with the family (as tight knit as you would expect from a working class household); life-changing events (having kids, trying for kids), and more. As the pair themselves put it: "It’s not all sunshine and rainbows and a lot goes into what we do. You won’t believe it until you see it so get watching!"
