Fresh off her fight of the night performance at UFC 168 just hours ago, UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey said post-fight that she'd be ready to get back into action ASAP. Be careful what you wish for.
UFC President Dana White announced during tonight's post-fight presser that undefeated Olympian Sara McMann will be ready to return to the Octagon to face Ronda at UFC 170 on February 22nd. This will be the first time we've seen her since she dominated Sheila Gaff in Jersey this past April.
"Dana actually approached me about this before this fight and I wanted to stay focused on this one but I'd taken such a long time off that I feel like I wanna fight again soon; I don't wanna sit on the shelf and I'm in the best shape of my life now so I think that it'd be the perfect time to go back-to-back. I'm ready to get back in there and I'm still hungry, this is what I love to do." -- Ronda's reaction following Dana's official announcement.When asked who could possibly beat Ronda Rousey inside of the women's 135 lb division, many MMA pundits have answered with the same two words - Sara McMann.Olympian vs. Olympian.
