UFc 170: Sara McMann Not Concerned With Selling Fight Vs. Ronda Rousey

Sara McMann isn’t overly concerned with hyping and selling her upcoming fight this Saturday night with Ronda Rousey at UFC 170 for one simple reason.

“That’s the great thing about fighting Ronda, she’ll sell the show,” said McMann, during a recent interview with MMAFighting.com. “And that’s fine with me.”

The two will meet for the UFC female bantamweight title from Las Vegas in a battle of former Olympic medalist. Rousey was a bronze medal winner in judo, while McMann won silver in wrestling.

Unlike former Rousey challenger Miesha Tate, McMann (7-0) takes a different approach to preparation. She knows what she is capable of, and doesn’t care if others are doubting her chance of becoming the first to hand “Rowdy” a loss.

“I don’t really need other people to believe in me, to know what I can do,” she said. “I would have never been able to wrestle or even start MMA if that’s what I needed beforehand.

“Being a little unknown, I’m happier that way.”
