UFC 168 saw Ronda Rousey retain her crown, but it was announced at the post-fight press conference that she would be returning to action in February.
Rousey, an Olympic bronze medalist, will meet Sara McMann in the evening's main event. McMann was a 2004 Olympic silver medalist in wrestling. This will be the first ever title fight between two Olympic medalists, and it just so happens to coincide with the Sochi Games.
The two elite grapplers entered the sport at around the same time, and have continually been linked to one another ever since. This fight was attempted when they were both amateurs, but never came to be. Now, at the top of the sport, they meet for the ultimate prize.
Rousey vs. McMann is one of the most highly anticipated female fights ever.
Here is a breakdown of the matchup between two elite women bantamweights.
