With Ronda Rousey’s match against Cat Zingano being pushed to February, a spot opened up for a women’s MMA contest at UFC 183 and it has now been snatched up.
On Wednesday’s episode of UFC Tonight, it was confirmed that top contenders Miesha Tate and Sara McMann will fight in Las Vegas.
Tate (15-5), is the No. 2 ranked female 135-pounder in the UFC’s media-generated rankings, and is attempting to win her third match in a row as she attempts to secure a third match against the champion.
McMann (8-1) is a former Olympic silver medalist wrestler who challenged Tate via Twitter following her victory over Nakai. McMann is also the division’s No. 3 ranked contender.
With it being confirmed that Gina Carano will not be signing with the company anytime soon, it is expect that the winner of Tate/McMann will get the next shot at the belt.
