Olympic Medalist McMAnn Believes She Can Beat Rousey

“I believe I do (have what it takes to beat Rousey). I don’t think I’d be fighting if I didn’t either naturally have it or acquire it to be the best in the world. And if she gets beat by Cat, then I’ll have the skill set to beat Cat Zingano. And I just think that’s the way that every high level athlete thinks about those things

Her next test is Sheila Gaff, a striker fighting out of Germany. Gaff’s known for her knockout power and has stopped six opponents with her striking thus far. But to the wrestler who’s competed at a high level, Sara sees that as Gaff’s downfal

“I think that her greatest strength is her greatest weakness. The fact that she sets such a high pace and the fact that she is constantly attacking, that leaves a lot of room for error. That leaves a lot of room for you to be counter attack. Whenever you have that kind of style, either you win big or you lose big. That’s what I really think is going end up working against her. It’s a double edged sword.”

After gaining Silver in the Olympic’s Sarah McMann transitioned to Mixed Martial Arts where she has been able to retain an unbeaten record in his career.

Newly signed to the UFC, the former Olympian believes she has what it takes to best Ronda Rousey in the cage.
