Breaking Down UFC 170 Main Event Between Rousey, McMann

Posted by Jack “The Hammer” Howard on 2/21/2014 9:25:31 PM

UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has absolutely dominated to this point in her career. Next up, is potentially the most difficult challenge to this point in her career. Rousey will defend her title for the second time when she takes on challenger Sara McMann at the UFC 170 event in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rousey has won eight-straight fights to open her professional MMA career, with each of those eight wins coming via submission. The champion is listed as a substantial favorite again at -450 odds, so clearly the people behind the online sports betting odds for the fight believe that she is destined to extend her dominant run.

The fact that McMann is considered to be the toughest challenger to face Rousey to this point, yet is still such a tremendous underdog is testament to how dominant the champion has been to this point. Rousey has taken care of business in a unique fashion, submitting every single opponent that she has encountered to this point. The majority of those live betting wins were secured in the first round, with the exception being her most recent win, which came against Miesha Tate. That level of dominance has brought to the table a level of intimidation, but McMann isn’t backing down.

That is because one of the areas that McMann stands above the other fighters that have faced Rousey is with her intelligence, and the focus that she will bring to this fight. Unlike Tate, there isn’t any emotion involved between these two leading up to the fight, meaning that McMann will be focused and ready. She is also one of the more intelligent fighters out there, and will understand the best possible approach to take to this bout. McMann has the smarts to handle her own, and her skill set on the ground is another reason to not overlook what she brings to the table.

An Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling, McMann has the kind of elite wrestling skills that she will need to avoid the traps set up by Rousey on the ground. Rousey’s strength is on the mat where she can work the submission game and find ways to make her opponents tap, so the wrestling skill that McMann brings to the Octagon presents a very interesting online betting match up. The idea that she can avoid tapping out creates a situation where something has to give, as every one of Rousey’s victories were clinched via submission.

That isn’t to say that Rousey won’t be able to submit McMann but rather, it will be a lot more difficult than it was for her with other opponents. Rousey has the skill set to still control the fight standing up, and there isn’t one area where she doesn’t have an advantage or is even. McMann is likely he best opponent that has stepped up versus Rousey to this point, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that an upset is in the cards.
