Sara McMann out vs. Sarah Kaufman at UFC Fight Night 27


The UFC is looking for a replacement after undefeated UFC women's bantamweight Sara McMann withdrew from her fight with Sarah Kaufamn at UFC Fight Night 27.

McMann’s agent, Hector Castro of Empire Sports Marketing, was unable to go into detail as to why McMann withdrew from the bout, but did tell MMAWeekly that “she will be back in the cage soon.”

Potential replacements include Liz Carmouche, Alexis Davis (who lost to Kaufman in '07 and '12), Amanda Nunes, and Germane de Randamie.

The bout was scheduled to have taken place on the FOX Sports 1-televised main card.

IMO, at 145 lbs., Marloes would beat Ronda.If they fought at 135, then, Ronda would win more often than not.Ronda tends to give her back away, and Marloes is very flexible and very dangerous from her back.

While I'm a fan of Marloes, I don't think she walks all over the UFC's 135 div, if Miesha took her arm, I would imagine Ronda could easily as well, Mcmann would give her fits, and a rematch with Kaufman wouldnt be a cake walk for her, and neither would a fight with carmoucheI'm not saying she can't win those fights, just that's it's not in the bag either. But those all sound like awesome fights. To bad GG and UFc are like oil and water.

Agreed. I do believe besides Cyborg, Sara Mcmann has a chance at taking Honda's belt but we shall wait and see my friend...

The Marloes Coenen who fought Cyborg at Invicta 6 beats convincingly any fighter at 145/135 not named Cyborg or Rousey imo. But she needs to be at 100% for that to happen.
