An unfortunate bit of news surfaced this week in relation to an upcoming card on FOX Sports 1, as UFC bantamweight Sara McMann has been forced out out of a match-up with Sarah Kaufman that was sure to send the winner into a clash for top contendership. No specific reasons were offered for her withdrawal though it is believed to be due to a personal matter rather than an injury.
McMann is an Olympic medalist in wrestling and has posted a 7-0 record far since transitioning into Mixed Martial Arts. She made her Octagon debut in April, securing a first frame TKO against Sheila Gaff at UFC 159.
