Head-2-Head: Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann

BY foxsports • February 19, 2014

In an ideal world, Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann would have waited another year or so, giving McMann a chance to gain more experience and cut the gap against the women'€™s bantamweight champion. That said, she has plenty of talent and natural athleticism to go with her world-level wrestling skills and fearlessness, and that'€™s a dangerous combination.

At UFC 170, McMann may be able to do something no one else has done against Rousey and determine where the fight takes place. Don'€™t be surprised, however, if she tries to make it a standup fight instead of tempting fate in the form of Rousey's 1,000 armbar setups. How successful she is in that quest may determine her upset possibilities.
