Rousey vs. McMann set for UFC 170


In an unexpected announcement, UFC President Dana White announced that Ronda Rousey will defend her title in only two months time.

Rousey will fight Sarah McMann in February for the UFC Women's Bantamweight title at UFC 170 which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cat Zingano was the number one contender before her injury, but won't resume training until March of 2014, so Rousey opted to fight sooner. McMann is currently undefeated as a professional at 7-0 and is a former Olympic wrestler.

The bout between Rousey and McMann will serve as the main event for the show with Daniel Cormier versus Rashad Evans taking the co-main slot.

McMann will beat Rousey in one-sided fashion.

From what I've seen of WMMA in the UFC so far, I doubt any of the current crop could implement a game plan past round 2.

I expect Rhonda to win the take down battle. The talent pool in Olympic women judo is much much larger than women wrestling. Women judo is practically practiced all around the world for close to 50years, and these women trained their entire life with men judo Olympian.Whereas women wrestling is only practiced in a dozen countries and is relative new.Given that Rhonda workout at Gokos, her no-gi hand/grip fighting will be as good as any wrestler. Plus the variety of throws in judo, including foot sweep and sacrifice throw that is foreign to wrestler. There is a good chance Rhonda will toss Sarah around Karo style.On top of the throws, add submission & improved striking. Sarah may get finished in 1 round.

McMann is the more sellable fight since both are unbeaten and Olympians so it makes sense for a PPV main event.   UFC cant do it cause they are losing all their big stars and draws but in a perfect world they would have waited till April and did Ronda/Davis on Fox.  WOuld have gotten them big ratings but they cant put her on Fox when they need her for PPV. I dont think anyone is beating Ronda at 135, Cyborg is probably the only female who can beat her.
