Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann has signed a multi-fight contract with Strikeforce, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com. McMann is a perfect 6-0 in her professional MMA career.
McMann captured Olympic silver in 2004 competing in the 63 kilograms freestyle wrestling tournament. The 31-year-old is considered one of the top female fighters in the world.
“I am saddened not to be fighting in the first Invicta FC bantamweight title fight,” McMann said. “I am not sure how long my MMA career will last and, with the time I have left in the sport, I need to take every opportunity that comes my way to fight the best competition out there. This move is part of a bigger picture for me.”
McMann last fought for Invicta FC, defeating Shayna Baszler via decision. It is possible that McMann competes in November at Strikeforce: Cormier vs. Mir.
