Sara McMann Not Concerned With Quick UFC Title Shot

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Sara McMann made her Octagon debut this past weekend, finishing Sheila Gaff in the first round.

McMann, a former Olympic silver medalist in wrestling, is currently unbeaten in seven professional MMA fights.

While some are already touting a McMann-Ronda Rousey fight for the UFC title, the would-be-challenger isn’t too concerned with that.

“If I could fight in two-to-three months, that would be golden,” she said, during an interview with “(The UFC has) things they’re doing and they’re on their track. I’d like to stay active.”

Those “plans” involve Rousey and Cat Zingano competing as coaches on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter before squaring off.

McMann continued, stating, “Every time I step in (the cage) I’m growing and improving and getting more comfortable. If I fight (Rousey) in four fights or I fight her in one fight, just to get to the title, it doesn’t matter.”

A McMann-Rousey bout would be an easy sell, as both are former Olympians and would likely have perfect records on the line.
