Just in case you missed the UFC 168 post-fight press – Ronda Rousey will be fighting again in less than two months. Her opponent, fellow Olympian Sara McMann, also celebrates an undefeated record in pro MMA and has medaled multiple times in submission grappling and freestyle wrestling. In an unprecedented move by the UFC, the official event poster was released just moments after Rousey’s title fight ended. It’s also one of the better posters the UFC has released in recent memory. Check it out below -   With the addition of this Rousey vs. McMann title fight UFC 170 goes from a pretty bad excuse for a pay-per-view to a pretty stacked card. Evans vs. Cormier couldn’t have carried this card, however, that fight makes for a fantastic co-main event and potential title eliminator. Also, if Melendez vs. Nurmagomedov becomes official that fight is a guaranteed must see scrap. Then you have a welterweight contest in MacDonald vs. Maia that features two top guys looking to get back in the win column. and a lightweight battle between two of the hottest lightweights today in Dos Anjos vs. Khabilov to round things out. On paper, this is all of a sudden coming off as another Silva/Shelby masterpiece. Here’s the full rumored card for as it stands today: • Women’s Bantamweight Title Bout: Ronda Rousey (8-0) (C) vs. Sara McMann (7-0) • Light Heavyweight Bout: Rashad Evans (19-3-1) vs. Daniel Cormier (13-0) • Lightweight Bout: Gilbert Melendez (22-3) vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov (21-0) • Welterweight Bout: Rory MacDonald (15-2) vs. Demian Maia (18-5) • Lightweight Bout: Rafael dos Anjos (20-6) vs. Rustam Khabilov (17-1) • Welterweight Bout: Mike Pyle (25-9-1) vs. TJ Waldburger (16-8) • Bantamweight Bout: Raphael Assuncao (21-4) vs. Francisco Rivera (10-2) • Welterweight Bout: Stephen Thompson (8-1) vs. Robert Whittaker (11-3)
