One of the most highly anticipated women's mixed martial arts bouts of the year has been scrapped due to an untimely injury. The fine folks over at MMAJunkie.com reported just moments ago that top ranked UFC bantamweight Sara McMann has been forced to withdraw from her main card bout with Sarah Kaufman on the promotions 2nd FOX Sports 1 card due to an undisclosed injury.  McMann was heading into her bout with Kaufman coming off one of the most impressive debuts in UFC history. The highly successful U.S. Olympian landed 72 out of 73 strikes on her opponent ('German Tank' Sheila Gaff) eventually forcing the judge to stop the madness and award her a TKO victory. What followed was one of the most photogenic moments in the short history of WMMA in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The McMann bow.  According to sources, the UFC is currently seeking out a replacement for the undefeated McMann to take on Kaufman come August 28th in Indianapolis. There will likely be no shortage of female bantamweights chomping at the bit to mix it up with the former #1 ranked 135'er in the world on short notice. A win over a dangerous top ranked fighter like Kaufman would be the shortcut of a lifetime for any fighter that has dreams of future title aspirations in this sport. You can count on a solid fighter to step in for McMann in the coming days to take full advantage of this "nothing to lose" situation.  UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann II Coverage
