UFC 159 To Receive Sara McMann-Sheila Gaff Bout

A third female fight inside the Octagon is expected to take place at UFC 159, as Ground and Pound is reporting Sara McMann will meet Sheila Gaff.

The card takes place April 27 from Newark, New Jersey.

McMann (6-0) won a silver medal in wrestling during the 2004 Summer Olympics. She was recently announced as the latest addition to the UFC’s female roster.

Gaff (10-4-1) appears set to become another member of that active roster. She will carry a three-fight win streak into the bout.

McMann should be the clear favorite in this one, as she appears to be a threat to Ronda Rousey’s position atop the bantamweight division.
