Two former United States Olympians meet in the main event of UFC 170 on Feb. 22, as judo bronze medalist Ronda Rousey defends her UFC women’s bantamweight title against freestyle wrestling silver medalist Sara McMann.

Rousey has quickly risen to superstardom as the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, but may be facing her toughest challenge to date when she squares off with McMann, who, like Rousey, is no stranger to the immense pressures that accompany such high-level competition.

Will Ronda Rousey successfully defend her belt once again, or will Sara McMann do what no other woman has done before and take Rousey’s belt?

    I don’t know why she has to keep attacking Tate. She did fare better than anyone else, so she should leave her alone.

      Where was Miesha Tate’s named mentioned in this article or in the preview video?

      Did you watch a diffrent video?
      When did Rousey attack Tate?


    I wonder if all the movie making & stardom will effect her focus & motivation in this fight?

      I would think it would, if this fight didn’t happen so soon after her last fight. She hasn’t really had the time to think about nothing else but her match up with McMann, IMO.

    Sara had a tough time beating the terrible lousy old Baszler who stinks. Easy win for Rousey first round as Mcmann isn’t very good.

    • Maddawgmar

      Good logic, bro!!! So since Roy Nelson beat Stefan Struve and Struve beat Miocic then Nelson will beat Miocic, right? Wait but how did Miocic win the fight? This is weird, MMA math not adding up. How about this math? Rousey was taken down by Tate in both their fights and she is a High School level wrestler, and McMann is a Olympic level wrestler.

      Bottom line, anyone can have a bad night and Fighters improve. This fight is very interesting, and I can’t wait.

    Sara McMann is not an elite UFC fighter with zero stand up and ok wrestling.

  • horace

    McMann winning destroys the woman in the UFC. Imagine having that face on McMann as champ??

      Yeah, because this is a beauty contest not mma right?
