Ronda Rousey vs Sara McMann headlines UFC 170

UFC president, Dana White, just dropped a bomb at the UFC 168 post fight press conference. Evidently, Women’s Bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, will have a quick turnaround as she takes on undefeated Sara McMann at UFC 170 in February. This bout will pit two Olympians against one another.

Rousey said that White brought the McMann fight to her earlier in the week, but she wanted to stay focused on Miesha. She followed that up by saying she has taken a long layoff, is as healthy and fit as ever, and is ready to fight McMann.

Dana White also mentioned that #1 contender, Cat Zingano, is healing and will start training in March. He also said that Daniel Cormier vs Rashad Evans will now be the co-main event as Rousey/McMann headlines.

Tonight, at UFC 168, Ronda defeated Miesha Tate to retain her Bantamweight title. The fight was fought at a frenetic pace, and it was a fantastic scrap. Ultimately, Ronda’s armbar streak continues as she locked in the fight ending submission in the third round.
