How to beat Ronda Rousey: Three things Sara McMann must do to pull off the upset
* * * *
A historic clash is set for Saturday’s UFC 170 main event when UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey meets Sara McMann in Las Vegas while looking for her third title defense.
Rousey and McMann are the first Olympians to headline a UFC pay-per-view event. The champ won bronze in judo at the 2008 Beijing Games while the challenger took silver in freestyle wrestling at Athens in 2004.
How these contrasting arts meet is one of the most intriguing questions leading into the fight. Dave Camarillo, who’s coached such MMA standouts as Jon Fitch, Josh Thomson and Josh Koscheck, sees three key areas of engagement in the Rousey vs. McMann matchup. And for the challenger to pull off an upset, she needs to win in those areas.
